    For fiscal year 2017, notwithstanding 31 U.S.C. 6303(1) and 
6305(1), the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, in 
carrying out the Agency's function to implement directly Federal 
environmental programs required or authorized by law in the absence of 
an acceptable tribal program, may award cooperative agreements to 
federally recognized Indian tribes or Intertribal consortia, if 
authorized by their member tribes, to assist the Administrator in 
implementing Federal environmental programs for Indian tribes required 
or authorized by law, except that no such cooperative agreements may be 
awarded from funds designated for State financial assistance 
agreements.
    The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency is 
authorized to collect and obligate pesticide registration service fees 
in accordance with section 33 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, 
and Rodenticide Act, as amended by Public Law 112-177, the Pesticide 
Registration Improvement Extension Act of 2012.
    Notwithstanding section 33(d)(2) of the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136w-8(d)(2)), the 
Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency may assess fees 
under section 33 of FIFRA (7 U.S.C. 136w-8) for fiscal year 2017.
    The Administrator is authorized to transfer up to $300,000,000 of 
the funds appropriated for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative under 
the heading ``Environmental Programs and Management'' to the head of 
any Federal department or agency, with the concurrence of such head, to 
carry out activities that would support the Great Lakes Restoration 
Initiative and Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement programs, projects, 
or activities; to enter into an interagency agreement with the head of 
such Federal department or agency to carry out these activities; and to 
make grants to governmental entities, nonprofit organizations, 
institutions, and individuals for planning, research, monitoring, 
outreach, and implementation in furtherance of the Great Lakes 
Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

    The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency shall base 
agency policies and actions regarding air emissions from forest biomass 
including, but not limited to, air emissions from facilities that 
combust forest biomass for energy, on the principle that forest biomass 
emissions do not increase overall carbon dioxide accumulations in the 
atmosphere when USDA Forest Inventory and Analysis data show that 
forest carbon stocks in the U.S. are stable or increasing on a national 
scale, or when forest biomass is derived from mill residuals, harvest 
residuals or forest management activities. Such policies and actions 
shall not pre-empt existing authorities of States to determine how to 
utilize biomass as a renewable energy source and shall not inhibit 
States' authority to apply the same policies to forest biomass as other 
renewable fuels in implementing Federal law.
    The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency shall 
apply the criteria and procedures in effect as of the date of enactment 
of this Act for aquifer exemptions under the underground injection 
control regulatory framework, in a collaborative manner with the States 
and regulated industries, to promptly review and make decisions on all 
aquifer exemption applications using the criteria for exempted aquifers 
set forth in section 146.4 of title 40, Code of Federal Regulations (as 
in effect on April 1, 2016). The Administrator shall not use 
substantial program revisions for purposes of reviewing and making 
decisions on aquifer exemption applications involving underground 
injection authorized by permit, provided the injection is occurring 
into aquifers that meet the criteria for an exemption under such 
section 146.4 and the recommendations of key State resource agencies 
are taken in account.
    For fiscal year 2017, and notwithstanding section 518(f) of the 
Federal Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1377(f)), the 
Administrator is authorized to use the amounts appropriated for any 
fiscal year under section 319 of the Act to make grants to federally 
recognized Indian tribes pursuant to sections 319(h) and 518(e) of that 
Act.

    Sec. 403. (a) DEFINITIONS.--For the purposes of this section:
            (1) ``Reprogramming'' includes:
                    (A) The reallocation of funds from one program, 
                project, or activity, to another within any 
                appropriation funded in this Act.
                    (B) For construction, land acquisition, and forest 
                legacy accounts, the reallocation of funds, including 
                unobligated balances, from one construction, land 
                acquisition, or forest legacy project to another such 
                project.
                    (C) An operating plan or any later modification 
                thereof submitted under subsection (i) of this section.
                    (D) Proposed reorganizations even without a change 
                in funding, including any change to the organization 
                table presented in the budget justification.
            (2) ``Program'', ``project'', and ``activity'' constitute 
        the delineation below the appropriation account level of any 
        agency funded by this Act, as shown in any table of the report 
        accompanying this Act.
            (3) ``Funds'' includes funds provided in this Act or 
        previous appropriations Acts that are available for obligation 
        in the current fiscal year and any amounts available for 
        obligation in the current fiscal year derived from collections, 
        fees or charges.
            (4) ``Assessment'' is any overhead charge, deduction, 
        reserve or holdback, including working capital fund and cost 
        pool charges, from any program, project, and activity to 
        support government-wide, departmental, agency, or bureau 
        administrative functions or headquarters, regional, or central 
        operations or to provide for contingencies.
    (b) GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR REPROGRAMMING.--
    (1) A reprogramming should be made only when an unforeseen 
situation arises, and then only if postponement of the project or the 
activity until the next appropriation year would result in actual loss 
or damage.
    (2) Any project or activity, which may be deferred through 
reprogramming, shall not later be accomplished by means of further 
reprogramming, but instead, funds should again be sought for the 
deferred project or activity through the regular appropriations 
process.
    (3) Except under the most urgent situations, reprogramming should 
not be employed to initiate new programs or increase allocations 
specifically denied or limited by the Congress, or to decrease 
allocations specifically increased by the Congress.
    (4) New programs requested in the budget should not be initiated 
before enactment of the bill without notification to, and the approval 
of, the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives 
and the Senate (hereinafter ``the Committees''). This restriction 
applies to all such actions regardless of whether a formal 
reprogramming of funds is required to begin the program.
    (c) CRITERIA.--
    (1) A reprogramming shall be submitted to the Committees in writing 
30 days prior to implementation if--
            (A) it exceeds $1,000,000 individually or cumulatively or 
        results in a cumulative increase or decrease of more than 10 
        percent of funds annually in any affected program, project, or 
        activity;
            (B) it is a reorganization; or
            (C) it is an operating plan or any later modification 
        thereof as submitted under subsection (i) of this section: 
        Provided, That such plan or modification thereof also meets any 
        of the other criteria under subsection (c)(1) of this section.
    (2) No funds shall be available for obligation or expenditure 
through a reprogramming until 30 days after the receipt by the 
Committees of a notice of proposed reprogramming.
    (3) A reprogramming shall be considered approved 30 days after 
receipt if the Committees have posed no objection. However, agencies 
will be expected to extend the approval deadline if specifically 
requested by either Committee.
    (d) EXCEPTIONS.--
    (1) With regard to the tribal priority allocations of the Bureau of 
Indian Affairs, there is no restriction on reprogrammings among these 
programs. However, the Bureau shall report on all reprogrammings made 
during a given fiscal year no later than 60 days after the end of the 
fiscal year.
    (2) With regard to the Environmental Protection Agency, State and 
Tribal Assistance Grants account, the Committees do not require 
reprogramming requests associated with States and Tribes Partnership 
Grants.
    (e) ASSESSMENTS.--
    (1) No assessment shall be levied or collected unless such 
assessment and the basis therefor are presented to the Committees in 
the budget justifications and are subsequently approved by the 
Committees. The explanation for any assessment in the budget 
justification shall show the amount of the assessment, the activities 
assessed, and the purpose of the funds.
    (2) Proposed changes to estimated assessments, as such estimates 
were presented in annual budget justifications, shall be submitted 
through the reprogramming process set out in this section and shall be 
subject to the same dollar and reporting criteria as any other 
reprogramming.
    (3) Each department, agency or bureau that utilizes assessments 
shall submit an annual report to the Committees which provides details 
on the use of all funds assessed from any other program, project, or 
activity.
    (4) In no case shall contingency funds or assessments be used to 
finance agency actions disapproved or limited by the Congress.
    (f) LAND ACQUISITIONS, EASEMENTS, AND FOREST LEGACY.--Lands shall 
not be acquired for more than the approved appraised value (as 
addressed in section 301(3) of Public Law 91-646), unless such 
acquisitions are submitted to the Committees for approval in compliance 
with these procedures.
    (g) LAND EXCHANGES.--Land exchanges, wherein the estimated value of 
the Federal lands to be exchanged is greater than $1,000,000, shall not 
be consummated until the Committees have had a 30-day period in which 
to examine the proposed exchange. In addition, the Committees shall be 
provided advance notification of exchanges valued between $500,000 and 
$1,000,000.
    (h) BUDGET STRUCTURE.--The program, project, and activity structure 
for any agency appropriation account shall not be altered without

display the President's budget request, adjustments made by the 
Congress, enacted rescissions, if appropriate, and the fiscal year 
enacted level;

    scientifically supported implementation of omr flow requirements

    Sec. 447.  (a) To maximize water supplies for the Central Valley 
Project and the State Water Project, in implementing the provisions of 
the smelt biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion, or any 
successor biological opinions or court orders, pertaining to management 
of reverse flow in the Old and Middle Rivers, the Secretary of the 
Interior shall--
            (1) consider the relevant provisions of the applicable 
        biological opinions or any successor biological opinions;
            (2) manage export pumping rates to achieve a reverse OMR 
        flow rate of -5,000 cubic feet per second unless existing 
        information or that developed by the Secretary of the Interior 
        under paragraphs (3) and (4) leads the Secretary to reasonably 
        conclude, using the best scientific and commercial data 
        available, that a less negative OMR flow rate is necessary to 
        avoid a significant negative impact on the long-term survival 
        of the species covered by the smelt biological opinion or 
        salmonid biological opinion. If the best scientific and 
        commercial data available to the Secretary indicates that a 
        reverse OMR flow rate more negative than -5,000 cubic feet per 
        second can be established without an imminent negative impact 
        on the long-term survival of the species covered by the smelt 
        biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion, the 
        Secretary shall manage export pumping rates to achieve that 
        more negative OMR flow rate;
            (3) document, in writing, any significant facts about real-
        time conditions relevant to the determinations of OMR reverse 
        flow rates, including--
                    (A) whether targeted real-time fish monitoring 
                pursuant to this section, including monitoring in the 
                vicinity of Station 902, indicates that a significant 
                negative impact on the long-term survival of species 
                covered by the smelt biological opinion or salmonid 
                biological opinion is imminent; and
                    (B) whether near-term forecasts with available 
                models show under prevailing conditions that OMR flow 
                of -5,000 cubic feet per second or higher will cause a 
                significant negative impact on the long-term survival 
                of species covered by the smelt biological opinion or 
                salmonid biological opinion;
            (4) show, in writing, that any determination to manage OMR 
        reverse flow at rates less negative than -5,000 cubic feet per 
        second is necessary to avoid a significant negative impact on 
        the long-term survival of species covered by the smelt 
        biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion, and provide, 
        in writing, an explanation of the data examined and the 
        connection between those data and the choice made, after 
        considering--
                    (A) the distribution of Delta smelt throughout the 
                Delta;
                    (B) the potential effects of documented, quantified 
                entrainment on subsequent Delta smelt abundance;
                    (C) the water temperature;
                    (D) other significant factors relevant to the 
                determination; and
                    (E) whether any alternative measures could have a 
                substantially lesser water supply impact; and
            (5) for any subsequent smelt biological opinion or salmonid 
        biological opinion, make the showing required in paragraph (4) 
        for any determination to manage OMR reverse flow at rates less 
        negative than the most negative limit in the biological opinion 
        if the most negative limit in the biological opinion is more 
        negative than -5,000 cubic feet per second.
    (b) No Reinitiation of Consultation.--In implementing or at the 
conclusion of actions under subsection (a), the Secretary of the 
Interior or the Secretary of Commerce shall not reinitiate consultation 
on those adjusted operations unless there is a significant negative 
impact on the long-term survival of the species covered by the smelt 
biological opinion or salmonid biological opinion. Any action taken 
under subsection (a) that does not create a significant negative impact 
on the long-term survival to species covered by the smelt biological 
opinion or salmonid biological opinion will not alter application of 
the take permitted by the incidental take statement in the biological 
opinion under section 7(o)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
    (c) Calculation of Reverse Flow in OMR.--Within 90 days of the 
enactment of this title, the Secretary of the Interior is directed, in 
consultation with the California Department of Water Resources to 
revise the method used to calculate reverse flow in Old and Middle 
Rivers, for implementation of the reasonable and prudent alternatives 
in the smelt biological opinion and the salmonid biological opinion, 
and any succeeding biological opinions, for the purpose of increasing 
Central Valley Project and State Water Project water supplies. The 
method of calculating reverse flow in Old and Middle Rivers shall be 
reevaluated not less than every five years thereafter to achieve 
maximum export pumping rates within limits established by the smelt 
biological opinion, the salmonid biological opinion, and any succeeding 
biological opinions.

  temporary operational flexibility for first few storms of the water 
                                  year

    Sec. 448.  (a) In General.--Consistent with avoiding an immediate 
significant negative impact on the long-term survival upon listed fish 
species over and above the range of impacts authorized under the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973 and other environmental protections 
under subsection (d), the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary 
of Commerce shall authorize the Central Valley Project and the 
California State Water Project, combined, to operate at levels that 
result in negative OMR flows at -7,500 cubic feet per second (based on 
United States Geological Survey gauges on Old and Middle Rivers) daily 
average as described in subsections (b) and (c) to capture peak flows 
during storm events.
    (b) Days of Temporary Operational Flexibility.--The temporary 
operational flexibility described in subsection (a) shall be authorized 
on days that the California Department of Water Resources determines 
the net Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta outflow index is at, or 
above, 13,000 cubic feet per second.
    (c) Compliance With Endangered Species Act Authorizations.--In 
carrying out this section, the Secretary of the Interior and the 
Secretary of Commerce may continue to impose any requirements under the 
smelt biological opinion and salmonid biological opinion during any 
period of temporary operational flexibility as they determine are 
reasonably necessary to avoid additional significant negative impacts 
on the long-term survival of a listed fish species over and above the 
range of impacts authorized under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, 
provided that the requirements imposed do not reduce water supplies 
available for the Central Valley Project and the California State Water 
Project.
    (d) Other Environmental Protections.--
            (1) State law.--The actions of the Secretary of the 
        Interior and the Secretary of Commerce under this section shall 
        be consistent with applicable regulatory requirements under 
        State law. The foregoing does not constitute a waiver of 
        sovereign immunity.
            (2) First sediment flush.--During the first flush of 
        sediment out of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in each 
        water year, and provided that such determination is based upon 
        objective evidence, OMR flow may be managed at rates less 
        negative than -5,000 cubic feet per second for a minimum 
        duration to avoid movement of adult Delta smelt (Hypomesus 
        transpacificus) to areas in the southern Sacramento-San Joaquin 
        River Delta that would be likely to increase entrainment at 
        Central Valley Project and California State Water Project 
        pumping plants.
            (3) Applicability of opinion.--This section shall not 
        affect the application of the salmonid biological opinion from 
        April 1 to May 31, unless the Secretary of Commerce finds, 
        based on the best scientific and commercial data available, 
        that some or all of such applicable requirements may be 
        adjusted during this time period to provide emergency water 
        supply relief without resulting in additional adverse effects 
        over and above the range of impacts authorized under the 
        Endangered Species Act of 1973. In addition to any other 
        actions to benefit water supply, the Secretary of the Interior 
        and the Secretary of Commerce shall consider allowing through-
        Delta water transfers to occur during this period if they can 
        be accomplished consistent with section 3405(a)(1)(H) of the 
        Central Valley Project Improvement Act. Water transfers solely 
        or exclusively through the California State Water Project that 
        do not require any use of Reclamation facilities or approval by 
        Reclamation are not required to be consistent with section 
        3405(a)(1)(H) of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act.
            (4) Monitoring.--During operations under this section, the 
        Commissioner of Reclamation, in coordination with the United 
        States Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries 
        Service, and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, shall 
        undertake expanded monitoring programs and other data gathering 
        to improve Central Valley Project and California State Water 
        Project water supplies, to ensure incidental take levels are 
        not exceeded, and to identify potential negative impacts, if 
        any, and actions necessary to mitigate impacts of the temporary 
        operational flexibility to species listed under the Endangered 
        Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).
    (e) Effect of High Outflows.--In recognition of the high outflow 
levels from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta during the days this 
section is in effect under subsection (b), the Secretary of the 
Interior and the Secretary of Commerce shall not count such days toward 
the 5-day and 14-day running averages of tidally filtered daily Old and 
Middle River flow requirements under the smelt biological opinion and 
salmonid biological opinion, as long as the Secretaries avoid 
significant negative impact on the long-term survival of listed fish 
species over and above the range of impacts authorized under the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973.
    (f) Level of Detail Required for Analysis.--In articulating the 
determinations required under this section, the Secretary of the 
Interior and the Secretary of Commerce shall fully satisfy the 
requirements herein but shall not be expected to provide a greater 
level of supporting detail for the analysis than feasible to provide 
within the short timeframe permitted for timely decision making in 
response to changing conditions in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River 
Delta.
    (g) OMR Flows.--The Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of 
Commerce shall, through the adaptive management provisions in the 
salmonid biological opinion, limit OMR reverse flow to -5,000 cubic 
feet per second based on date-certain triggers in the salmonid 
biological opinions only if using real-time migration information on 
salmonids demonstrates that such action is necessary to avoid a 
significant negative impact on the long-term survival of listed fish 
species over and above the range of impacts authorized under the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973.
    (h) No Reinitiation of Consultation.--In implementing or at the 
conclusion of actions under this section, the Secretary of the Interior 
shall not reinitiate consultation on those adjusted operations if there 
is no immediate significant negative impact on the long-term survival 
of listed fish species over and above the range of impacts authorized 
under the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Any action taken under this 
section that does not create an immediate significant negative impact 
on the long-term survival of listed fish species over and above the 
range of impacts authorized under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 
will not alter application of the take permitted by the incidental take 
statement in those biological opinions under section 7(o)(2) of the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973.

        state water project offset and water rights protections

    Sec. 449.  (a) Offset for State Water Project.--
            (1) Implementation impacts.--The Secretary of the Interior 
        shall confer with the California Department of Fish and 
        Wildlife in connection with the implementation of this section 
        on potential impacts to any consistency determination for 
        operations of the State Water Project issued pursuant to 
        California Fish and Game Code section 2080.1.
            (2) Additional yield.--If, as a result of the application 
        of this section, the California Department of Fish and 
        Wildlife--
                    (A) determines that operations of the State Water 
                Project are inconsistent with the consistency 
                determinations issued pursuant to California Fish and 
                Game Code section 2080.1 for operations of the State 
                Water Project; or
                    (B) requires take authorization under California 
                Fish and Game Code section 2081 for operation of the 
                State Water Project in a manner that directly or 
                indirectly results in reduced water supply to the State 
                Water Project as compared with the water supply 
                available under the smelt biological opinion and the 
                salmonid biological opinion; and as a result, Central 
                Valley Project yield is greater than it otherwise would 
                have been, then that additional yield shall be made 
                available to the State Water Project for delivery to 
                State Water Project contractors to offset that reduced 
                water supply.
            (3) Notification related to environmental protections.--The 
        Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Commerce shall--
                    (A) notify the Director of the California 
                Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding any changes 
                in the manner in which the smelt biological opinion or 
                the salmonid biological opinion is implemented; and
                    (B) confirm that those changes are consistent with 
                the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
                seq.).
    (b) Area of Origin and Water Rights Protections.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of the Interior and the 
        Secretary of Commerce, in carrying out the mandates of this 
        section, shall take no action that--
                    (A) diminishes, impairs, or otherwise affects in 
                any manner any area of origin, watershed of origin, 
                county of origin, or any other water rights protection, 
                including rights to water appropriated before December 
                19, 1914, provided under State law;
                    (B) limits, expands or otherwise affects the 
                application of section 10505, 10505.5, 11128, 11460, 
                11461, 11462, 11463 or 12200 through 12220 of the 
                California Water Code or any other provision of State 
                water rights law, without respect to whether such a 
                provision is specifically referred to in this section; 
                or
                    (C) diminishes, impairs, or otherwise affects in 
                any manner any water rights or water rights priorities 
                under applicable law.
            (2) Section 7 of the endangered species act.--Any action 
        proposed to be undertaken by the Secretary of the Interior and 
        the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to both this section and 
        section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 
        et seq.) shall be undertaken in a manner that does not alter 
        water rights or water rights priorities established by 
        California law or it shall not be undertaken at all. Nothing in 
        this subsection affects the obligations of the Secretary of the 
        Interior and the Secretary of Commerce under section 7 of the 
        Endangered Species Act of 1973.
            (3) Effect of act.--

                obligation of the Secretary of the Interior under 
                section 8 of the Act of June 17, 1902 (32 Stat. 390, 
                chapter 1093).
                    (B) Nothing in this section diminishes, impairs, or 
                otherwise affects in any manner any Project purposes or 
                priorities for the allocation, delivery or use of water 
                under applicable law, including the Project purposes 
                and priorities established under section 3402 and 
                section 3406 of the Central Valley Project Improvement 
                Act (Public Law 102-575; 106 Stat. 4706).
    (c) No Redirected Adverse Impacts.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of the Interior and 
        Secretary of Commerce shall not carry out any specific action 
        authorized under this section that will directly or through 
        State agency action indirectly result in the involuntary 
        reduction of water supply to an individual, district, or agency 
        that has in effect a contract for water with the State Water 
        Project or the Central Valley Project, including Settlement and 
        Exchange contracts, refuge contracts, and Friant Division 
        contracts, as compared to the water supply that would be 
        provided in the absence of action under this section, and 
        nothing in this section is intended to modify, amend or affect 
        any of the rights and obligations of the parties to such 
        contracts.
            (2) Action on determination.--If, after exploring all 
        options, the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary of 
        Commerce makes a final determination that a proposed action 
        under this section cannot be carried out in accordance with 
        paragraph (1), that Secretary--
                    (A) shall document that determination in writing 
                for that action, including a statement of the facts 
                relied on, and an explanation of the basis, for the 
                decision;
                    (B) may exercise the Secretary's existing 
                authority, including authority to undertake the 
                drought-related actions otherwise addressed in this 
                title, or to otherwise comply with other applicable 
                law, including the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 
                U.S.C. 1531 et seq.); and
                    (C) shall comply with subsection (a).
    (d) Allocations for Sacramento Valley Water Service Contractors.--
            (1) Definitions.--In this subsection:
                    (A) Existing central valley project agricultural 
                water service contractor within the sacramento river 
                watershed.--The term ``existing Central Valley Project 
                agricultural water service contractor within the 
                Sacramento River Watershed'' means any water service 
                contractor within the Shasta, Trinity, or Sacramento 
                River division of the Central Valley Project that has 
                in effect a water service contract on the date of 
                enactment of this section that provides water for 
                irrigation.
                    (B) Year terms.--The terms ``Above Normal'', 
                ``Below Normal'', ``Dry'', and ``Wet'', with respect to 
                a year, have the meanings given those terms in the 
                Sacramento Valley Water Year Type (40-30-30) Index.
            (2) Allocations of water.--
                    (A) Allocations.--Subject to subsection (c), the 
                Secretary of the Interior shall make every reasonable 
                effort in the operation of the Central Valley Project 
                to allocate water provided for irrigation purposes to 
                each existing Central Valley Project agricultural water 
                service contractor within the Sacramento River 
                Watershed in accordance with the following:
                            (i) Not less than 100 percent of the 
                        contract quantity of the existing Central

                        contract quantity of the existing Central 
                        Valley Project agricultural water service 
                        contractor within the Sacramento River 
                        Watershed in a ``Below Normal'' year that is 
                        preceded by an ``Above Normal'' or ``Wet'' 
                        year.
                            (iv) Not less than 50 percent of the 
                        contract quantity of the existing Central 
                        Valley Project agricultural water service 
                        contractor within the Sacramento River 
                        Watershed in a ``Dry'' year that is preceded by 
                        a ``Below Normal'', ``Above Normal'', or 
                        ``Wet'' year.
                            (v) Subject to clause (ii), in any other

                        through (iv), not less than twice the 
                        allocation percentage to south-of-Delta Central 
                        Valley Project agricultural water service 
                        contractors, up to 100 percent.
                    (B) Effect of clause.--Nothing in clause (A)(v) 
                precludes an allocation to an existing Central Valley 
                Project agricultural water service contractor within 
                the Sacramento River Watershed that is greater than 
                twice the allocation percentage to a south-of-Delta 
                Central Valley Project agricultural water service 
                contractor.
            (3) Protection of environment, municipal and industrial
