SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Water Resources Development Act of 1986, Public Law 99-662, 100 Stat. 4082-4273, as amended, provides for the automatic deauthorization of water resource projects and separable elements of projects.

Section 1001(b)(2), 33 U.S.C. 579a(b)(2), requires the Secretary of the Army to submit to the Congress a biennial list of unconstructed water resources projects and separable elements of projects for which no obligations of funds have been incurred for planning, design or construction during the prior seven full fiscal years. If funds are not obligated within thirty months from the date the list was submitted, the project/separable elements are deauthorized. Notwithstanding these provisions, projects may be specifically deauthorized or reauthorized by law. (Note: The provision of section 1001(b)(2) prior to the 2007 amendments apply to this action.)

For purposes of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, “separable element” is defined in section 103(f), Public Law 99-662, 33 U.S.C. 2213(f).

In accordance with section 1001(b)(2), the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) submitted a list of 31 projects and separable elements to Congress on 29 September 2006. From this list, 27 projects/separable elements were deauthorized on March 29, 2009, 2 were removed due to obligation of funds, and 2 were deauthorized on 02 April 2002 and 01 May 1997 respectively.Start Printed Page 31714
