Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That in order to
permit an immediate payment of the purchase price of the Klamath Marsh, the title to which was taken by the United States by the Act of August 23, 1958 (72 Stat. 816), and thereby make possible partial distribution of funds to the Klamath Indians who have elected to withdraw from the tribe, which will lessen the need for making interim loans to such Indians, subsection 28(f) of the Act of August 13, 1954, as amended (72 Stat. 816), is hereby amended by changing the effective date for the taking of title by the United States from April 1, 1961, to the earliest date after September 30, 1959, when the Secretary of the Interior determines that funds for the payment of the purchase price are available from the sale of stamps under the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act of March 16, 1934, as amended (16 U. S. C. 718).
Approved, September 9, 1959.
