SECTION 1. PAYMENT.

    In consideration of the fact that Eugene Makuch--
            (1) served as a foreign counterintelligence agent and 
        dedicated his life to assist the Federal Bureau of 
        Investigation in its efforts at the height of the Cold War to 
        combat communism, the Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti 
        (KGB), and the Soviet Union, and
            (2) has not received employment assistance or health, 
        social security, or pension benefits, despite assurances that 
        he would receive such benefits upon his retirement,
the Secretary of the Treasury shall pay, out of funds not otherwise 
appropriated, the sum of $1,000,000 to Eugene Makuch of East Amherst, 
New York, in compensation for the lifetime aggregate value of benefits 
earned but not received by Eugene Makuch.

SEC. 2. SATISFACTION OF CLAIM.

    The sum paid under section 1 shall be in full satisfaction of any 
claims that Eugene Makuch may have against the United States arising 
out of his service for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

SEC. 3. LIMITATION ON ATTORNEY FEES.

    Not more than 10 percent of the sum paid under section 1 shall be 
paid to or received by any agent or attorney for services rendered in 
connection with the recovery of such sum. Any person who violates this 
section shall be fined under title 18, United States Code.
