      (1) $1,500,000 are rescinded from the amounts available for making determinations whether a species is a threatened or endangered species and whether habitat is critical habitat under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.); and

      (2) none of the remaining funds appropriated under that heading may be made available for making a final determination that a species is threatened or endangered or that habitat constitutes critical habitat (except a final determination that a species previously determined to be endangered is no longer endangered but continues to be threatened).

    To the extent that the Endangered Species Act of 1973 has been interpreted or applied in any court order (including an order approving a settlement between the parties to a civil action) to require the making of a determination respecting any number of species or habitats by a date certain, that Act shall not be applied to require that the determination be made by that date if the making of the determination is made impracticable by the rescission made by the preceding sentence.

ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION

    The Congress finds that the 1990 amendments to the Clean Air Act (Public Law 101-549) superseded prior requirements of the Clean Air Act regarding the demonstration of attainment of national ambient air quality standards for the South Coast, Ventura, and Sacramento areas of California and thus eliminated the obligation of the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to promulgate a Federal implementation plan under section 110(e) of the Clean Air Act for those areas. Upon the enactment of this Act, any Federal implementation plan that has been promulgated by the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act for the South Coast, Ventura, or Sacramento areas of California pursuant to a court order or settlement shall be rescinded and shall have no further force and effect.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

SEC. 401. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ‘Mexican Debt Disclosure Act of 1995’.

SEC. 402. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds that--

      (1) Mexico is an important neighbor and trading partner of the United States;

      (2) on January 31, 1995, the President approved a program of assistance to Mexico, in the form of swap facilities and securities guarantees in the amount of $20,000,000,000, using the exchange stabilization fund;

      (3) the program of assistance involves the participation of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Bank of Canada, and several Latin American countries;

      (4) the involvement of the exchange stabilization fund and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System means that United States taxpayer funds will be used in the assistance effort to Mexico;

      (5) assistance provided by the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the Inter-American Development Bank may require additional United States contributions of taxpayer funds to those entities;

      (6) the immediate use of taxpayer funds and the potential requirement for additional future United States contributions of taxpayer funds necessitates congressional oversight of the disbursement of funds; and

      (7) the efficacy of the assistance to Mexico is contingent on the pursuit of sound economic policy by the Government of Mexico.
