Be it enacted by the Senate arid House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Interior is authorized and directed, with the consent of the Christmas Copper Corporation, to extend to December 31, 1946, the provisions of the contract entered into on June 19, 1942, whereby the United States agreed to purchase the Diesel electric-generating plant of said corporation for use in connection with the San Carlos Indian irrigation project, and whereby said corporation agreed to accept delivery of electric energy from the United States prior to December 31, 1944, in partial payment for such plant; to modify the contract thus extended so as to require that electric energy delivered to said corporation during the period beginning January 1, 1945, be paid for by credit under the contract at the rates established by the general rates schedule for the San Carlos Indian irrigation project system in effect at the time of delivery; and to delete from the contract the provision reserving a first right to said corporation to use seven hundred and fifty kilowatts of power. The terms of the contract thus extended shall be subject to the right of the United States to remove the Diesel plant from its present location or to sell or otherwise dispose of it, which action may be taken in the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior. In the event of such removal or disposition of the Diesel plant, any remaining balance of the purchase price shall be liquidated and discharged prior to December 31, 1946, in the same manner as though such plant had not been disposed of or removed.
Approved, July 21, 1945.
