Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That in order to provide financial assistance to Menominee County, Wisconsin, for a transitional period after April 30, 1961, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized, notwithstanding anything contained in the Menominee Indian Termination Act of June 17, 1954 (68 Stat. 250), as amended (25 U. S. C. 891-902), and the proclamation of the Secretary of the Interior pursuant thereto dated April 26, 1961 (26 Fed. Reg. 3726), to make grants either to the State of Wisconsin for distribution to the County or Town of Menominee or directly to said county or town, for contributions to joint school district costs, in not more than the following amounts:
(a) during the year ending April 30, 1962, $220,000;

(e) during the year ending April 30, 1966, 20 per centum of the amount aforesaid.
Any grant made under this section shall be made only upon such written assurances relating to control and supervision by responsible State officials to insure that the grant is used for the purpose intended as the Secretary may require. No grant shall serve to diminish the amounts which the County or Town of Menominee is entitled to receive from the State as provided by its laws, except so far as such diminution arises from treating the grants as if they were taxes raised by said county or town for purposes of determining what amounts, if any, the State is required to pay to said county and town under its laws.
The Surgeon General of the Public Health Service, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, is authorized to construct under the Act of July 31, 1959 (73 Stat. 267, 42 U. S. C. 2004a), such sanitation facilities on the former Menominee Reservation as he finds are reasonble and justified and to expend for this purpose not more than $438,000. The authority granted by this section shall expire at the end of fiscal year 1965.
There are authorized to be appropriated such sums, not in excess of $1,098,000, as are required to carry out the provisions of this Act.
Approved, April 4, 1962.
