        Section 1.  Pursuant to the provisions of subsection (b) of
     section 20, act of June 22, 1964 (P.L.131), known as the
     "Project 70 Land Acquisition and Borrowing Act," the General
     Assembly hereby authorizes the Department of Forests and Waters,
     hereinafter referred to as the department, with the approval of
     the Governor, to lease for industrial or economic development
     purposes, in accordance with the provisions of this act, the
     approximately ten acres of improved lands and buildings at
     Quehanna, Clearfield County, acquired under Project 70 by the
     Commonwealth for the department from the Curtiss-Wright

     tenants or nonprofit industrial development corporations.
        (b)  The department in securing tenants shall cooperate fully
     with the Department of Commerce.
        (c)  Every such lease entered into shall conform in general
     to the terms of the standard industrial lease used by the
     department and approved by the Attorney General. Every such
     lease shall otherwise than as in this act prescribed be upon
     such terms and conditions as the Secretary of Forests and Waters
     deems in the best interest of the Commonwealth. However, all
     paved roads through the Quehanna project shall remain open to
     the general public use.
        (d)  Any such lease may permit the tenant to alter or expand,
     at its own expense and with the approval of the department first
     obtained, in writing, existing buildings to meet the
     requirements of its particular industrial operation. ((d)
     amended Dec. 10, 1968, P.L.1161, No.366)
        (e)  Every such lease shall provide for the deposit of
     industrial floor space rentals and sewage and water rentals in a
     restricted receipts fund, from which the department may draw
     moneys for use in maintaining, repairing, and altering the
     buildings and grounds including all equipment, fixtures and
     facilities appurtenant thereto and including the repairing,
     clearing, maintaining, replacing, altering and expanding of all
     roads, roadways and highways now existing and hereafter
     constructed; developing, operating and maintaining the water and
     sewage disposal facilities, and replacing machinery, equipment
     and fixtures appurtenant thereto, at aforesaid Quehanna. Said
     restricted receipts fund shall be audited two years from the
     effective date of this act and at two-year intervals thereafter,
     with any residue appearing in said fund at the end of each
     auditing period to be deposited in the General Fund. ((e)
     amended Dec. 10, 1968, P.L.1161, No.366)
