In subsection (a), the words “under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe” are omitted, since the Secretary has inherent authority to issue regulations appropriate to exercising his statutory functions.

The words “in his discretion”, “experience”, and “upon their own applications” are omitted as surplusage.
