PUBLIC LAWS-CH. 251 -MAY 13, 1946 Request for author- ity. Determination of projects. Granting of funds. Applicition by pub- lic agency. AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS FOR PROJECTS IN ALASKA, HAWAII, AND PUERTO RICO SEC. 7 . All funds available for grants for projects in the Territory of Alaska, in the Territory of Hawaii, or in Puerto Rico, respectively, shall be available to pay the United States share of the allowable project costs of such approved projects therein as the Administrator may deem most appropriate for carrying out the national airport plan. CONDITION PRECEDENT TO DEVELOPMENT OF LARGER AIRPORTS SEC. 8 . At least two months prior to the close of each fiscal year, the Administrator shall submit to the Congress a request for author- ity to undertake during the next fiscal year those of the projects for the development of class 4 and larger airports, included in the then current revision of the national airport plan formulated by him under this Act, which, in his opinion, should be undertaken during that fiscal year, together with an estimate of the Federal funds required to pay the United States share of the allowable project costs of such projects. In determining which projects to include in such a request, the Administrator shall consider, among other things, the relative aeronautical need for and urgency of the projects included in the plan and the likelihood of securing satisfactory sponsorship of such proj- ects. In granting any funds that thereafter may be appropriated to pay the United States share of allowable project costs during the next fiscal year, the Administrator may consider such appropriation as granting the authority requested unless a contrary intent shall have been manifested by the Congress by law or by concurrent resolution, and no such grants shall be made unless so authorized. SUBMISSION AND APPROVAL OF PROJECTS Submission SEC. 9. (a) Subject to the provisions of subsections (b) and (c) of this section, any public agency, or two or more public agencies acting jointly, may submit to the Administrator a project application in such form, and containing such supporting information, as may be prescribed by the Administrator and setting forth the airport devel- opment proposed to be undertaken. No project application shall pro- pose airport development other than that included in the then current revision of the national airport plan formulated by the Administrator under this Act, and all such proposed development shall be in accord- ance with standards established by the Administrator, including standards for site location, airport layout, grading, drainage, seeding, paving, lighting, and safety of approaches. Applications by Public Agencies Whose Powers Are Limited by State Law (b) Nothing in this Act shall authorize the submission of a project application by any municipality or other public agency which is subject to the law of any State if the submission of such project application by such municipality or other public agency is prohibited by the law of such State. Applications by Federal Agencies (c) Nothing in this Act shall authorize the submission of a project application by the United States or any agency thereof, except in the case of a project in the Territory of Alaska, the Territory of Hawaii, or Puerto Rico, or in a national park or national recreation area, a national monument, or a national forest.
