Trackways National Monument
SEC. 2101. FINDINGS.

Congress finds that--
(1) in 1987, a major deposit of Paleozoic Era fossilized
footprint megatrackways was discovered in the Robledo Mountains
in southern New Mexico;
(2) the trackways contain footprints of numerous amphibians,
reptiles, and insects (including previously unknown species),
plants, and petrified wood dating back approximately 280,000,000
years, which collectively provide new opportunities to
understand animal behaviors and environments from a time
predating the dinosaurs;
(3) title III of Public Law 101-578 (104 Stat. 2860)--
(A) provided interim protection for the site at
which the trackways were discovered; and
(B) directed the Secretary of the Interior to--
(i) prepare a study assessing the significance
of the site; and
(ii) based on the study, provide
recommendations for protection of the
paleontological resources at the site;
(4) the Bureau of Land Management completed the Paleozoic
Trackways Scientific Study Report in 1994, which characterized
the site as containing ``the most scientifically significant
Early Permian tracksites'' in the world;
(5) despite the conclusion of the study and the
recommendations for protection, the site remains unprotected and
many irreplaceable trackways specimens have been lost to
vandalism or theft; and
(6) designation of the trackways site as a National Monument
would protect the unique fossil resources for present and future
generations while allowing for public education and continued
scientific research opportunities.

3406(c)(1) and 3407(d)(2) of the Reclamation Projects

[[Page 1357]]
123 STAT. 1357

Authorization and Adjustment Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-575; 106 Stat.
4721, 4727) and payments made pursuant to paragraph 16(b)(3) of the
Settlement and subsection (c)(1)(B) shall be the limitation of such
entities' direct financial contribution to the Settlement, subject to
the terms and conditions of paragraph 21 of the Settlement.

(A) In general.--In accordance with the Settlement
and the memorandum of understanding executed pursuant to
paragraph 6 of the Settlement, the Secretary shall
conduct a study that specifies--
(i) the costs of undertaking any work required
under paragraph 11(a)(3) of the Settlement to
increase the capacity of reach 4B prior to
reinitiation of Restoration Flows;
(ii) the impacts associated with reinitiation
of such flows; and
(iii) measures that shall be implemented to
mitigate impacts.
(B) Deadline.--The study under subparagraph (A)
shall be completed prior to restoration of any flows
other than Interim Flows.
(2) Report.--
(A) In general.--The Secretary shall file a report
with Congress not later than 90 days after issuing a
determination, as required by the Settlement, on whether
to expand channel conveyance capacity to 4500 cubic feet
per second in reach 4B of the San Joaquin River, or use
an alternative route for pulse flows, that--
(i) explains whether the Secretary has decided
to expand Reach 4B capacity to 4500 cubic feet per
second; and
(ii) addresses the following matters:
(I) The basis for the Secretary's
determination, whether set out in
environmental review documents or
otherwise, as to whether the expansion
of Reach 4B would be the preferable
means to achieve the Restoration Goal as
provided in the Settlement, including
how different factors were assessed such
as comparative biological and habitat
benefits, comparative costs, relative
availability of State cost-sharing
funds, and the comparative benefits and
impacts on water temperature, water
supply, private property, and local and
downstream flood control.
(II) The Secretary's final cost
estimate for expanding Reach 4B capacity
to 4500 cubic feet per second, or any
alternative route selected, as well as
the alternative cost estimates provided
by the State, by the Restoration
Administrator, and by the other parties
to the Settlement.

[[Page 1358]]
123 STAT. 1358

(III) The Secretary's plan for
funding the costs of expanding Reach 4B
or any alternative route selected,
whether by existing Federal funds
provided under this subtitle, by non-
Federal funds, by future Federal
appropriations, or some combination of
such sources.
(B) Determination required.--The Secretary shall, to
the extent feasible, make the determination in
subparagraph (A) prior to undertaking any substantial
construction work to increase capacity in reach 4B.
(3) Costs.--If the Secretary's estimated Federal cost for
expanding reach 4B in paragraph (2), in light of the Secretary's
funding plan set out in that paragraph, would exceed the
remaining Federal funding authorized by this part (including all
funds reallocated, all funds dedicated, and all new funds
authorized by this part and separate from all commitments of
State and other non-Federal funds and in-kind commitments), then
before the Secretary commences actual construction work in reach
4B (other than planning, design, feasibility, or other
preliminary measures) to expand capacity to 4500 cubic feet per
second to implement this Settlement, Congress must have
increased the applicable authorization ceiling provided by this
part in an amount at least sufficient to cover the higher
estimated Federal costs.
SEC. 10010. REPAYMENT CONTRACTS AND ACCELERATION OF REPAYMENT OF
CONSTRUCTION COSTS.

(a) <>  Conversion of Contracts.--

1194), to a contract under subsection (c)(1) of section 9 of
said Act, under mutually agreeable terms and conditions.

[[Page 1359]]
123 STAT. 1359

(3) All such contracts entered into pursuant to paragraph
(1) shall--
(A) require the repayment, either in lump sum or by
accelerated prepayment, of the remaining amount of
construction costs identified in the Central Valley
Project Schedule of Irrigation Capital Rates by
Contractor 2007 Irrigation Water Rates, dated January
25, 2007, as adjusted to reflect payments not reflected
in such schedule, and properly assignable for ultimate
return by the contractor, no later than January 31,
2011, or if made in approximately equal annual
installments, no later than January 31, 2014; such
amount to be discounted by \1/2\ the Treasury
Rate. <>  An estimate of the
remaining amount of construction costs as of January 31,
2011, as adjusted, shall be provided by the Secretary to
each contractor no later than June 30, 2010;
(B) require that, notwithstanding subsection (c)(2),
construction costs or other capitalized costs incurred
after the effective date of the contract or not
reflected in the schedule referenced in subparagraph
(A), and properly assignable to such contractor, shall
be repaid in not more than 5 years after notification of
the allocation if such amount is a result of a
collective annual allocation of capital costs to the
contractors exercising contract conversions under this
subsection of less than $5,000,000. If such amount is
$5,000,000 or greater, such cost shall be repaid as
provided by applicable Reclamation law, provided that
the reference to the amount of $5,000,000 shall not be a
precedent in any other context;
(C) provide that power revenues will not be
available to aid in repayment of construction costs
allocated to irrigation under the contract; and
(D) conform to the Settlement and this part and
shall continue so long as the contractor pays applicable
charges, consistent with subsection (c)(2) and
applicable law.
(4) All such contracts entered into pursuant to paragraph
(2) shall--
(A) require the repayment in lump sum of the
remaining amount of construction costs identified in the
most current version of the Central Valley Project
Schedule of Municipal and Industrial Water Rates, as
adjusted to reflect payments not reflected in such
schedule, and properly assignable for ultimate return by
the contractor, no later than January 31,
2014. <>  An estimate of the
remaining amount of construction costs as of January 31,
2014, as adjusted, shall be provided by the Secretary to
each contractor no later than June 30, 2013;
(B) require that, notwithstanding subsection (c)(2),
construction costs or other capitalized costs incurred
after the effective date of the contract or not
reflected in the schedule referenced in subparagraph
(A), and properly assignable to such contractor, shall
be repaid in not more than 5 years after notification of
the allocation if such amount is a result of a
collective annual allocation of capital costs to the
contractors exercising contract conversions under this
subsection of less than $5,000,000. If such amount is
$5,000,000 or greater, such cost shall be repaid

[[Page 1360]]
123 STAT. 1360

as provided by applicable Reclamation law, provided that
the reference to the amount of $5,000,000 shall not be a
precedent in any other context; and
(C) conform to the Settlement and this part and
shall continue so long as the contractor pays applicable
charges, consistent with subsection (c)(2) and
applicable law.

(b) Final Adjustment.--The amounts paid pursuant to subsection (a)
shall be subject to adjustment following a final cost allocation by the
Secretary upon completion of the construction of the Central Valley
Project. In the event that the final cost allocation indicates that the
costs properly assignable to the contractor are greater than what has
been paid by the contractor, the contractor shall be obligated to pay
the remaining allocated costs. The term of such additional repayment
contract shall be no less than 1 year and no more than 10 years,
however, mutually agreeable provisions regarding the rate of repayment
of such amount may be developed by the parties. In the event that the
final cost allocation indicates that the costs properly assignable to
the contractor are less than what the contractor has paid, the Secretary
is authorized and directed to credit such overpayment as an offset
against any outstanding or future obligation of the contractor.
(c) Applicability of Certain Provisions.--
(1) Notwithstanding any repayment obligation under
subsection (a)(3)(B) or subsection (b), upon a contractor's
compliance with and discharge of the obligation of repayment of
the construction costs as provided in subsection (a)(3)(A), the
provisions of section 213(a) and (b) of the Reclamation Reform
Act of 1982 (96 Stat. 1269) shall apply to lands in such
district.
(2) <>  Notwithstanding any
repayment obligation under paragraph (3)(B) or (4)(B) of
subsection (a), or subsection (b), upon a contractor's
compliance with and discharge of the obligation of repayment of
the construction costs as provided in paragraphs (3)(A) and
(4)(A) of subsection (a), the Secretary shall waive the pricing
provisions of section 3405(d) of the Reclamation Projects
Authorization and Adjustment Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-575)
for such contractor, provided that such contractor shall
continue to pay applicable operation and maintenance costs and
other charges applicable to such repayment contracts pursuant to
the then-current rate-setting policy and applicable law.
(3) Provisions of the Settlement applying to Friant
Division, Hidden Unit, and Buchanan Unit long-term water service
contracts shall also apply to contracts executed pursuant to
this section.

(d) Reduction of Charge for Those Contracts Converted Pursuant to
Subsection (a)(1).--
(1) At the time all payments by the contractor required by
subsection (a)(3)(A) have been completed, the Secretary shall
reduce the charge mandated in section 10007(1) of this part,
from 2020 through 2039, to offset the financing costs as defined
in section 10010(d)(3). The reduction shall be calculated at the
time all payments by the contractor required by subsection
(a)(3)(A) have been completed. The calculation shall remain
fixed from 2020 through 2039 and shall be based upon anticipated
average annual water deliveries, as mutually agreed upon by the
Secretary and the contractor, for the period from

[[Page 1361]]
123 STAT. 1361

2020 through 2039, and the amounts of such reductions shall be
discounted using the Treasury Rate; provided, that such charge
shall not be reduced to less than $4.00 per acre foot of project
water delivered; <>  provided
further, that such reduction shall be implemented annually
unless the Secretary determines, based on the availability of
other monies, that the charges mandated in section 10007(1) are
otherwise needed to cover ongoing federal costs of the
Settlement, including any federal operation and maintenance
costs of facilities that the Secretary determines are needed to
implement the Settlement. If the Secretary determines that such
charges are necessary to cover such ongoing federal costs, the
Secretary shall, instead of making the reduction in such
charges, reduce the contractor's operation and maintenance
obligation by an equivalent amount, and such amount shall not be
recovered by the United States from any Central Valley Project
contractor, provided nothing herein shall affect the obligation
of the contractor to make payments pursuant to a transfer
agreement with a non-federal operating entity.
(2) <>  If the calculated reduction
in paragraph (1), taking into consideration the minimum amount
required, does not result in the contractor offsetting its
financing costs, the Secretary is authorized and directed to
reduce, after October 1, 2019, any outstanding or future
obligations of the contractor to the Bureau of Reclamation,
other than the charge assessed and collected under section
3407(d) of Public law 102-575, by the amount of such deficiency,
with such amount indexed to 2020 using the Treasury Rate and
such amount shall not be recovered by the United States from any
Central Valley Project contractor, provided nothing herein shall
affect the obligation of the contractor to make payments
pursuant to a transfer agreement with a non-Federal operating
entity.
(3) Financing costs, for the purposes of this subsection,
shall be computed as the difference of the net present value of
the construction cost identified in subsection (a)(3)(A) using
the full Treasury Rate as compared to using one half of the
Treasury Rate and applying those rates against a calculated
average annual capital repayment through 2030.
(4) <>  Effective in 2040, the charge
shall revert to the amount called for in section 10007(1) of
this part.
(5) <>  For purposes of this section,
``Treasury Rate'' shall be defined as the 20 year Constant
Maturity Treasury (CMT) rate published by the United States
Department of the Treasury as of October 1, 2010.

(e) Satisfaction of Certain Provisions.--
(1) <>  In general.--Upon the
first release of Interim Flows or Restoration Flows, pursuant to
paragraphs 13 or 15 of the Settlement, any short- or long-term
agreement, to which 1 or more long-term Friant Division, Hidden
Unit, or Buchanan Unit contractor that converts its contract
pursuant to subsection (a) is a party, providing for the
transfer or exchange of water not released as Interim Flows or
Restoration Flows shall be deemed to satisfy the provisions of
subsection 3405(a)(1)(A) and (I) of the Reclamation Projects
Authorization and Adjustment Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-575)
without the further concurrence of the Secretary as to
compliance with said subsections if the contractor provides, not
later than 90

[[Page 1362]]
123 STAT. 1362

days before commencement of any such transfer or exchange for a
period in excess of 1 year, and not later than 30 days before
commencement of any proposed transfer or exchange with duration
of less than 1 year, written notice to the Secretary stating how
the proposed transfer or exchange is intended to reduce, avoid,
or mitigate impacts to water deliveries caused by the Interim
Flows or Restoration Flows or is intended to otherwise
facilitate the Water Management Goal, as described in the
Settlement. <>  The Secretary shall
promptly make such notice publicly available.
(2) Determination of reductions to water deliveries.--Water
transferred or exchanged under an agreement that meets the terms
of this subsection shall not be counted as a replacement or an
offset for purposes of determining reductions to water
deliveries to any Friant Division long-term contractor except as
provided in paragraph 16(b) of the Settlement. The
Secretary <>  shall, at
least annually, make publicly available a compilation of the
number of transfer or exchange agreements exercising the
provisions of this subsection to reduce, avoid, or mitigate
impacts to water deliveries caused by the Interim Flows or
Restoration Flows or to facilitate the Water Management Goal, as
well as the volume of water transferred or exchanged under such
agreements.
(3) State law.--Nothing in this subsection alters State law
or permit conditions, including any applicable geographical
restrictions on the place of use of water transferred or
exchanged pursuant to this subsection.

(f) Certain Repayment Obligations Not Altered.--Implementation of
the provisions of this section shall not alter the repayment obligation
of any other long-term water service or repayment contractor receiving
water from the Central Valley Project, or shift any costs that would
otherwise have been properly assignable to the Friant contractors absent
this section, including operations and maintenance costs, construction
costs, or other capitalized costs incurred after the date of enactment
of this Act, to other such contractors.
(g) Statutory Interpretation.--Nothing in this part shall be
construed to affect the right of any Friant Division, Hidden Unit, or
Buchanan Unit long-term contractor to use a particular type of financing
to make the payments required in paragraph (3)(A) or (4)(A) of
subsection (a).
SEC. 10011. CALIFORNIA CENTRAL VALLEY SPRING RUN CHINOOK SALMON.

(a) Finding.--Congress finds that the implementation of the
Settlement to resolve 18 years of contentious litigation regarding
restoration of the San Joaquin River and the reintroduction of the
California Central Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon is a unique and
unprecedented circumstance that requires clear expressions of
Congressional intent regarding how the provisions of the Endangered
Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) are utilized to achieve the
goals of restoration of the San Joaquin River and the successful
reintroduction of California Central Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon.
(b) Reintroduction in the San Joaquin River.--California Central
Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon shall be reintroduced in the San
Joaquin River below Friant Dam pursuant to section

[[Page 1363]]
123 STAT. 1363

10(j) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1539(j)) and the
Settlement, provided that the Secretary of Commerce finds that a permit
for the reintroduction of California Central Valley Spring Run Chinook
salmon may be issued pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the Endangered
Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1539(a)(1)(A)).
(c) Final Rule.--
(1) Definition of third party.--For the purpose of this
subsection, the term ``third party'' means persons or entities
diverting or receiving water pursuant to applicable State and
Federal laws and shall include Central Valley Project
contractors outside of the Friant Division of the Central Valley
Project and the State Water Project.
(2) Issuance.--The Secretary of Commerce shall issue a final
rule pursuant to section 4(d) of the Endangered Species Act of
1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533(d)) governing the incidental take of
reintroduced California Central Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon
prior to the reintroduction.
(3) Required components.--The rule issued under paragraph
(2) shall provide that the reintroduction will not impose more
than de minimus: water supply reductions, additional storage
releases, or bypass flows on unwilling third parties due to such
reintroduction.
(4) Applicable law.--Nothing in this section--
(A) diminishes the statutory or regulatory
protections provided in the Endangered Species Act of
1973 for any species listed pursuant to section 4 of the
Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533) other
than the reintroduced population of California Central
Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon, including protections
pursuant to existing biological opinions or new
biological opinions issued by the Secretary or Secretary
of Commerce; or
(B) precludes the Secretary or Secretary of Commerce
from imposing protections under the Endangered Species
Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) for other species
listed pursuant to section 4 of that Act (16 U.S.C.
1533) because those protections provide incidental
benefits to such reintroduced California Central Valley
Spring Run Chinook salmon.

(d) Report.--
(1) In general.--Not later than December 31, 2024, the
Secretary of Commerce shall report to Congress on the progress
made on the reintroduction set forth in this section and the
Secretary's plans for future implementation of this section.
(2) Inclusions.--The report under paragraph (1) shall
include--
(A) an assessment of the major challenges, if any,
to successful reintroduction;
(B) an evaluation of the effect, if any, of the
reintroduction on the existing population of California
Central Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon existing on the
Sacramento River or its tributaries; and
(C) an assessment regarding the future of the
reintroduction.

(e) FERC Projects.--
(1) In general.--With regard to California Central Valley
Spring Run Chinook salmon reintroduced pursuant to the

[[Page 1364]]
123 STAT. 1364

Settlement, the Secretary of Commerce shall exercise its
authority under section 18 of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C.
811) by reserving its right to file prescriptions in proceedings
for projects licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission on the Calaveras, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Merced, and
San Joaquin rivers and otherwise consistent with subsection (c)
until after the expiration of the term of the Settlement,
December 31, 2025, or the expiration of the designation made
pursuant to subsection (b), whichever ends first.
(2) Effect of subsection.--Nothing in this subsection shall
preclude the Secretary of Commerce from imposing prescriptions
pursuant to section 18 of the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 811)
solely for other anadromous fish species because those
prescriptions provide incidental benefits to such reintroduced
California Central Valley Spring Run Chinook salmon.

(f) Effect of Section.--Nothing in this section is intended or shall
be construed--
(1) to modify the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C.
1531 et seq.) or the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 791a et seq.);
or
(2) to establish a precedent with respect to any other
application of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C.
1531 et seq.) or the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 791a et seq.).

PART II--STUDY TO DEVELOP WATER PLAN; REPORT

SEC. 10101. STUDY TO DEVELOP WATER PLAN; REPORT.

(a) Plan.--
(1) Grant.--To the extent that funds are made available in
advance for this purpose, the Secretary of the Interior, acting
