Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the eighth paragraph of section 22 of "An Act making appropriations for the current and contingent expenses of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, for fulfilling treaty stipulations with various Indian tribes, and for other purposes," for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1921, pertaining to the collection of charges from landowners on the Wapato project of the Yakima Indian Reservation, Washington (Forty-first Statutes at Large, 431), following the words "And provided further," be amended to read as follows:
"That the Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized and directed to collect on or before December 31 of each calendar year hereafter, including 1922, from landowners other than Indians under the said system the sum of $2.50 per acre for each acre of land to which water for irrigation purposes can be delivered from the said system, which sum shall be credited on a per acre basis in favor of the land in behalf of which it shall have been paid and be deducted from the total per acre charge assessable against said land when the amount of such total charge can be determined, and the total amount so collected, including any money collected from Indian allottees, shall be available for expenditure under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior for continuing the construction work on the said system.
"That nothing herein shall be construed to modify or release any charge that may have accrued prior to the year 1922 and as to any unpaid amounts due for the years 1920 and 1921, the Secretary of the Interior, in his discretion, is hereby authorized to grant an extension of time within which such payments may be made for such time and upon such terms, including interest charges, as he may determine and under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe: Provided, That no extension for the payment of any amount so due for the years 1920 and 1921 shall in any event be extended beyond January 1, 1925."
Approved, May 25, 1922.
