Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
Title V of such Act, as amended, is amended by adding at the end thereof the following new section:
"SEC. 504. (a) At any educational institution including any educational facility operated by the Indian Service where the Commissioner of Education shall find that there exists or impends an acute shortage of educational facilities, other than housing, required for persons engaged in the pursuit of courses of training or education under title ll of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, as amended, the Federal Works Administrator is authorized, upon request of such educational institution, to provide such educational facilities (1) by the use or reuse (including disassembling, transporting, and reerecting) of structures or facilities (including improvements, equipments, materials, or furnishings but not including site acquisition and preparation or the installation of streets and utility mains) under the jurisdiction or control of any Federal agency which are no longer required by such agency and which, in the determination of said Administrator can be utilized to provide the needed educational facilities and which, in the determination of the War Assets Administrator are available for such use or reuse and (2) by connecting utilities from buildings to mains. Upon request of the Federal Works Administrator any Federal agency having jurisdiction or control of any such structures or facilities may, with the approval of the War Assets Administrator, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, transfer such structures or facilities to the Federal Works Administrator, without reimbursement, for such use or reuse. Without regard to the provisions of any other law, said Administrator is authorized to transfer to any educational institution any educational facilities provided for such educational institution under this subsection.
"(b) In carrying out the provisions of this section, said Administrator is authorized to exercise all the powers contained in sections 202 (a) and (b) and title III of this Act, subject to all the limitations contained in sections 203 (a) and (b) and title III of this Act: Provided, That nothing herein shall exclude the Indian Service from participation in the educational benefits provided by this Act.
"(c) To carry out the provisions of this section, and for administrative expenses in connection therewith, any funds made available under title 11 of this Act are hereby made available, and for such
purposes there is also authorized to be appropriated the sum of $100,000,000.
"(d) Nothing in this section 504 shall affect the transfer to the National Housing Administrator of any structures or facilities requisitioned by him pursuant to section 502 (b) of this Act, for housing for veterans and distressed families of servicemen prior to any request therefor made by the Federal Works Administrator pursuant to the authority contained in said section 504.
"(e) Except with respect to contracts previously entered into and court proceedings then pending, this section shall cease to be effective on the last date on which courses of education or training may be provided under title II of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, as amended.
"(f) As used in this Act the term ‘educational institution’ shall mean (a) any public educational institution or (b) any private educational institution, no part of the net earnings of which shall inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.
"(g) Nothing in this section shall authorize the transfer of any property to the Federal Works Administrator until the preference to veterans provided by section 16 of the Surplus Property Act of 1944, as amended, has been fully satisfied in accordance with its terms; and for the purposes of such section 16 transfers to such Administrator under this section shall not be considered as transfers to a Government agency."
