In subsection (a), the words “Amounts in the fund are available” are added because of the restatement.
In subsection (b), the words “Amounts in the fund remain available until expended” are substituted for “shall be available, without fiscal year limitation” for consistency in the revised title.
In subsection (c)(1), the words “amounts appropriated to the fund” are substituted for “any appropriations made for the purpose of providing capital” to eliminate unnecessary words. In clause (2), the word “reasonable” is substituted for “fair and reasonable” because it is inclusive.
In subsection (d), the words “other Federal agencies” are omitted because they are included in “other sources”.
