Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any homestead entryman under the Act of June 17, 1902, known as the Reclamation Act, including entrymen on ceded Indian lands, may, at any time after having complied with the provisions of law applicable to such lands as to residence, reclamation and cultivation, submit proof of such residence, reclamation and cultivation, which proof, if found regular and satisfactory, shall entitle the entryman to a patent, and all purchasers of water-right certificates on reclamation projects shall be entitled to a final water-right certificate upon proof of the cultivation and reclamation of the land to which the certificate applies, to the extent required by the Reclamation Act for homestead entrymen: Provided, That no such patent or certificate shall issue until all sums due the United States on account of such land or water-right at the time of issuance of patent or certificate have been paid.
