       (3) in addition to the relief provided under this Act, the 
     Administration should encourage lenders to provide payment 
     deferments, when appropriate, and to extend the maturity of 
     covered loans, so as to avoid balloon payments or any 
     requirement for increases in debt payments resulting from 
     deferments provided by lenders during the period of the

     Administrator under paragraph (1) shall be applied to the 
     covered loan such that the borrower is relieved of the 
     obligation to pay that amount.

     Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the

     and
       (3) when necessary to provide more time because of the 
     potential of higher volumes, travel restrictions, and the 
     inability to access some properties during the COVID-19 
     pandemic, extend lender site visit requirements to--
       (A) not more than 60 days (which may be extended at the 
     discretion of the Administration) after the occurrence of an 
     adverse event, other than a payment default, causing a loan 
     to be classified as in liquidation; and
       (B) not more than 90 days after a payment default.
       (e) Rule of Construction.--Nothing in this section may be 
     construed to limit the authority of the Administrator to make 
     payments pursuant to subsection (c) with respect to a covered 
     loan solely because the covered loan has been sold in the 
     secondary market.
       (f) Authorization of Appropriations.--There is authorized 
     to be appropriated to the Administrator $17,000,000,000 to

       ``(B) The amount of funds transferred to the account of a 
     State under subparagraph (A) during the applicable period 
     shall, as determined by the Secretary of Labor, be equal to 
     one-half of the amounts of compensation (as defined in 
     section 3306(h) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986) 
     attributable under the State law to service to which section 
     3309(a)(1) of such Code applies that were paid by the State 
     for weeks of unemployment beginning and ending during such 
     period. Such transfers shall be made at such times as the 
     Secretary of Labor considers appropriate.
       ``(C) Notwithstanding any other law, funds transferred to 
     the account of a State under subparagraph (A) shall be used 
     exclusively to reimburse governmental entities and other 
     organizations described in section 3309(a)(2) of such Code

     making the transfers described in paragraph (1).
       ``(B) There are appropriated from the general fund of the

                   BENEFITS.

       (a) Federal-State Agreements.--Any State which desires to 
     do so may enter into and participate in an agreement under 
     this section with the Secretary of Labor (in this section 
     referred to as the ``Secretary''). Any State which is a party 
     to an agreement under this section may, upon providing 30 
     days' written notice to the Secretary, terminate such 
     agreement.
       (b) Provisions of Agreement.--
       (1) Federal pandemic unemployment compensation.--Any 
     agreement under this section shall provide that the State 
     agency of the State will make payments of regular 
     compensation to individuals in amounts and to the extent that 
     they would be determined if the State law of the State were 
     applied, with respect to any week for which the individual is 
     (disregarding this section) otherwise entitled under the 
     State law to receive regular compensation, as if such State 
     law had been modified in a manner such that the amount of 
     regular compensation (including dependents' allowances) 
     payable for any week shall be equal to--
       (A) the amount determined under the State law (before the 
     application of this paragraph), plus
       (B) an additional amount of $600 (in this section referred 
     to as ``Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation'').
       (2) Allowable methods of payment.--Any Federal Pandemic 
     Unemployment Compensation provided for in accordance with 
     paragraph (1) shall be payable either--

     same manner as any regular compensation otherwise payable for 
     the week involved; or
       (B) at the option of the State, by payments which are made 
     separately from, but on the same weekly basis as, any regular 
     compensation otherwise payable.
       (c) Nonreduction Rule.--
       (1) In general.--An agreement under this section shall not 
     apply (or shall cease to apply) with respect to a State upon 
     a determination by the Secretary that the method governing 
     the computation of regular compensation under the

[[Page H1742]]

     State law of that State has been modified in a manner such 
     that the number of weeks (the maximum benefit entitlement), 
     or the average weekly benefit amount, of regular compensation 
     which will be payable during the period of the agreement 
     (determined disregarding any Federal Pandemic Unemployment 
     Compensation) will be less than the number of weeks, or the 
     average weekly benefit amount, of the average weekly benefit 
     amount of regular compensation which would otherwise have 
     been payable during such period under the State law, as in 
     effect on January 1, 2020.
       (2) Maximum benefit entitlement.--In paragraph (1), the 
     term ``maximum benefit entitlement'' means the amount of 
     regular unemployment compensation payable to an individual 
     with respect to the individual's benefit year.
       (d) Payments to States.--
       (1) In general.--

     amount equal to 100 percent of--
       (i) the total amount of Federal Pandemic Unemployment 
     Compensation paid to individuals by the State pursuant to 
     such agreement; and
       (ii) any additional administrative expenses incurred by the 
     State by reason of such agreement (as determined by the 
     Secretary).
       (B) Terms of payments.--Sums payable to any State by reason 
     of such State's having an agreement under this section shall 
     be payable, either in advance or by way of reimbursement (as 
     determined by the Secretary), in such amounts as the 
     Secretary estimates the State will be entitled to receive 
     under this section for each calendar month, reduced or 
     increased, as the case may be, by any amount by which the 
     Secretary finds that his estimates for any prior calendar 
     month were greater or less than the amounts which should have 
     been paid to the State. Such estimates may be made on the 
     basis of such statistical, sampling, or other method as may 
     be agreed upon by the Secretary and the State agency of the 
     State involved.
       (2) Certifications.--The Secretary shall from time to time 
     certify to the Secretary of the Treasury for payment to each 
     State the sums payable to such State under this section.

     fund of the Treasury, without fiscal year limitation, such 
     sums as may be necessary for purposes of this subsection.
       (e) Applicability.--An agreement entered into under this 
     section shall apply to weeks of unemployment--
       (1) beginning after the date on which such agreement is 
     entered into; and
       (2) ending on or before July 31, 2020.
       (f) Fraud and Overpayments.--
       (1) In general.--If an individual knowingly has made, or 
     caused to be made by another, a false statement or 
     representation of a material fact, or knowingly has failed, 
     or caused another to fail, to disclose a material fact, and 
     as a result of such false statement or representation or of 
     such nondisclosure such individual has received an amount of 
     Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation to which such 
     individual was not entitled, such individual--
       (A) shall be ineligible for further Federal Pandemic 
     Unemployment Compensation in accordance with the provisions 
     of the applicable State unemployment compensation law 
     relating to fraud in connection with a claim for unemployment 
     compensation; and
       (B) shall be subject to prosecution under section 1001 of 
     title 18, United States Code.
       (2) Repayment.--In the case of individuals who have 
     received amounts of Federal Pandemic Unemployment 
     Compensation to which they were not entitled, the State shall 
     require such individuals to repay the amounts of such Federal 
     Pandemic Unemployment Compensation to the State agency, 
     except that the State agency may waive such repayment if it 
     determines that--
       (A) the payment of such Federal Pandemic Unemployment 
     Compensation was without fault on the part of any such 
     individual; and
       (B) such repayment would be contrary to equity and good 
     conscience.
       (3) Recovery by state agency.--
       (A) In general.--The State agency shall recover the amount 
     to be repaid, or any part thereof, by deductions from any 
     Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation payable to such 
     individual or from any unemployment compensation payable to 
     such individual under any State or Federal unemployment 
     compensation law administered by the State agency or under 
     any other State or Federal law administered by the State 
     agency which provides for the payment of any assistance or 
     allowance with respect to any week of unemployment, during 
     the 3-year period after the date such individuals received 
     the payment of the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation 
     to which they were not entitled, in accordance with the same 
     procedures as apply to the recovery of overpayments of 
     regular unemployment benefits paid by the State.
       (B) Opportunity for hearing.--No repayment shall be 
     required, and no deduction shall be made, until a 
     determination has been made, notice thereof and an 
     opportunity for a fair hearing has been given to the 
     individual, and the determination has become final.
       (4) Review.--Any determination by a State agency under this 
     section shall be subject to review in the same manner and to

     unemployment compensation law, and only in that manner and to 
     that extent.
       (g) Application to Other Unemployment Benefits.--Each 
     agreement under this section shall include provisions to 
     provide that the purposes of the preceding provisions of this

     Secretary finds that his estimates for any prior calendar 
     month were greater or less than the amounts which should have 
     been paid to the State. Such estimates may be made on the 
     basis of such statistical, sampling, or other method as may

     of law, the Secretary of the Treasury shall transfer from the

     to individuals who--

     the State law or under Federal law with respect to a benefit 
     year (excluding any benefit year that ended before July1, 
     2019);
       (B) have no rights to regular compensation with respect to 
     a week under such law or any other State unemployment 
     compensation law or to compensation under any other Federal

       (3) Exhaustion of benefits.--For purposes of paragraph 
     (2)(A), an individual shall be deemed to have exhausted such 
     individual's rights to regular compensation under a State law 
     when--
       (A) no payments of regular compensation can be made under

     terminated by reason of the expiration of the benefit year

     of total unemployment; and
       (ii) the amount of Federal Pandemic Unemployment 
     Compensation under section 2104;
       (B) the terms and conditions of the State law which apply 
     to claims for regular compensation and to the payment thereof 
     (including terms and conditions relating to availability for 
     work, active search for work, and refusal to accept work) 
     shall apply to claims for pandemic emergency unemployment

     must be deferred until after the payment of any pandemic

     which the individual is concurrently eligible.
       (6) Nonreduction rule.--
       (A) In general.--An agreement under this section shall not 
     apply (or shall cease to apply) with respect to a State upon 
     a determination by the Secretary that the method governing 
     the computation of regular compensation under the State law 
     of that State has been modified in a manner such that the 
     number of weeks (the maximum benefit entitlement), or the 
     average weekly benefit amount, of regular compensation which 
     will be payable during the period of the agreement will be 
     less than the number of weeks, or the average weekly benefit 
     amount, of the average weekly benefit amount of regular 
     compensation which would otherwise have been payable during 
     such period under the State law, as in effect on January 1, 
     2020.
       (B) Maximum benefit entitlement.--In subparagraph (A), the

       (i) is registered for employment services in such a manner 
     and to such extent as prescribed by the State agency;
       (ii) has engaged in an active search for employment that is 
     appropriate in light of the employment available in the labor

     with the standards communicated to the individual by the 
     State;

     to the State agency.
       (B) Flexibility.--Notwithstanding the requirements under 
     subparagraph (A) and paragraph (2)(D), a State shall provide 
     flexibility in meeting such requirements in case of 
     individuals unable to search for work because of COVID-19, 
     including because of illness, quarantine, or movement 
     restriction.
       (b) Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation Account.--
       (1) In general.--Any agreement under this section shall 
     provide that the State will establish, for each eligible

     under section 2104, for the benefit year.

     individual for such week for total unemployment plus the 
     amount of Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation under 
     section 2104.
       (c) Payments to States Having Agreements for the Payment of 
     Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation.--
       (1) In general.--There shall be paid to each State that has

     chapter 85 of title 5, United States Code. A State shall not 
     be entitled to any reimbursement under such chapter 85 in

     such compensation.

     such amounts as the Secretary estimates the State will be 
     entitled to receive under this section for each calendar 
     month, reduced or increased, as the case may be, by any 
     amount by which the Secretary finds that the Secretary's 
     estimates for any prior calendar month were greater or less 
     than the amounts which should have been paid to the State. 
     Such estimates may be made on the basis of such statistical, 
     sampling, or other method as may be agreed upon by the 
     Secretary and the State agency of the State involved.

       (A) Findings.--Congress finds the following:

     the inmate population, the high traffic, the high volume of 
     inmates, the high rate of turnover of inmates and personnel,

     same landscape of vendors as all other Federal agencies and 
     private entities.
       (iv) The ability of the Bureau to purchase needed equipment

     or suspends the ordinary functioning of the copyright system 
     under this title, or any component thereof, including on a 
     regional basis, the Register may, on a temporary basis, toll, 
     waive, adjust, or modify any timing provision (including any 
     deadline or effective period, except as provided in 
     subsection (c)) or procedural provision contained in this 
     title or chapters II or III of title 37, Code of Federal 
     Regulations, for no longer than the Register reasonably 
     determines to be appropriate to mitigate the impact of the 
     disruption caused by the national emergency. In taking such 
     action, the Register shall consider the scope and severity of 
     the particular national emergency, and its specific effect 
     with respect to the particular provision, and shall tailor 
     any remedy accordingly.
       ``(b) Notice and Effect.--Any action taken by the Register 
     in response to a national emergency pursuant to subsection 
     (a) shall not be subject to section 701(e) or subchapter II 
     of chapter 5 of title 5, United States Code, and chapter 7 of 
     title 5, United States Code. The provision of general public 
     notice detailing the action being taken by the Register in 
     response to the national emergency under subsection (a) is 
     sufficient to effectuate such action. The Register may make 
     such action effective both prospectively and retroactively in 
     relation to a particular provision as the Register determines 
     to be appropriate based on the timing, scope, and nature of 
     the public emergency, but any action by the Register may only 
     be retroactive with respect to a deadline that has not 
     already passed before the declaration described in subsection 
     (a).
       ``(c) Statement Required.--Except as provided in subsection 
     (d), not later than 20 days after taking any action that 
     results in a provision being modified for a cumulative total 
     of longer than 120 days, the Register shall submit to 
     Congress a statement detailing the action taken, the relevant 
     background, and rationale for the action.
       ``(d) Exceptions.--The authority of the Register to act 
     under subsection (a) does not extend provisions under this 
     title requiring the commencement of an action or proceeding 
     in Federal court within a specified period of time, except 
     that if the Register adjusts the license availability date 
     defined in section 115(e)(15), such adjustment shall not 
     affect the ability to commence actions for any claim of 
     infringement of exclusive rights provided by paragraphs (1) 
     and (3) of section 106 against a digital music provider 
     arising from the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of 
     a musical work by such digital music provider in the course 
     of engaging in covered activities that accrued after January 
     1, 2018, provided that such action is commenced within the 
     time periods prescribed under section 115(d)(10)(C)(i) or 
     115(d)(10)(C)(ii) as calculated from the adjusted license 
     availability date. If the Register adjusts the license 
     availability date, the Register must provide the statement to 
     Congress under subsection (c) at the same time as the public 
     notice of such adjustment with a detailed explanation of why 
     such adjustment is needed.
       ``(e) Copyright Term Exception.--The authority of the 
     Register to act under subsection (a) does not extend to 
     provisions under chapter 3, except section 304(c), or section 
     1401(a)(2).
       ``(f) Other Laws.--Notwithstanding section 301 of the 
     National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1631), the authority of 
     the Register under subsection (a) is not contingent on a 
     specification made by the President under such section or any 
     other requirement under that Act (other than the emergency 
     declaration under section 201(a) of such Act (50 U.S.C. 
     1621(a))). The authority described in this section supersedes 
     the authority of title II of the National Emergencies Act (50 
     U.S.C. 1621 et seq.).''.
       (b) Technical and Conforming Amendment.--The table of 
     sections for chapter 7 of title 17, United States Code, is 
     amended by adding at the end the following:

``710. Emergency relief authority.''.
