     To amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to authorize 
           appropriations for sewer overflow control grants.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SEWER OVERFLOW CONTROL GRANTS.

    (a) Administrative Requirements.--Section 221(e) of the Federal 
Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1301(e)) is amended to read as 
follows:
    ``(e) Administrative Requirements.--A project that receives 
assistance under this section shall be carried out subject to the same 
requirements as a project that receives assistance from a State water 
pollution control revolving fund under title VI, except to the extent 
that the Governor of the State in which the project is located 
determines that a requirement of title VI is inconsistent with the 
purposes of this section.''.
    (b) Authorization of Appropriations.--The first sentence of section 
221(f) of such Act (33 U.S.C. 1301(f)) is amended by striking 
``$750,000,000'' and all that follows before the period and inserting 
``$250,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2005 through 2010''.
    (c) Allocation of Funds.--Section 221(g) of such Act (33 U.S.C. 
1301(g)) is amended to read as follows:
    ``(g) Allocation of Funds.--
            ``(1) Fiscal year 2005.--Subject to subsection (h), the 
        Administrator shall use the amounts appropriated to carry out 
        this section for fiscal year 2005 for making grants to 
        municipalities and municipal entities under subsection (a)(2) 
        in accordance with the criteria set forth in subsection (b).
            ``(2) Fiscal year 2006 and thereafter.--Subject to 
        subsection (h), the Administrator shall use the amounts 
        appropriated to carry out this section for fiscal year 2006 and 
        each fiscal year thereafter for making grants to States under 
        subsection (a)(1) in accordance with a formula to be 
        established by the Administrator, after providing notice and an 
        opportunity for public comment, that allocates to each State a 
        proportional share of such amounts based on the total needs of 
        the State for municipal combined sewer overflow controls and 
        sanitary sewer overflow controls identified in the most recent 
        survey conducted pursuant to section 516.''.
    (d) Reports.--The first sentence of section 221(i) of such Act (33 
U.S.C. 1301(i)) is amended by striking ``2003'' and inserting ``2008''.
