(2) Paragraph (2) is amended by striking out “Federal property” and inserting in lieu thereof “Indian lands”.

(3) Paragraph (4) is amended by striking out “in its school district” and inserting in lieu thereof "of a substantial percentage of the children in the membership of its schools". (4) Such subsection (a) is further amended by—

(A) striking out “is attributable to children who reside on Federal property, and which" in the portion of the first sentence of subsection (a) which follows paragraph (4);

“(b) If the Commissioner determines with respect to any local educational agency that

"(1) such agency is providing or, upon completion of the school facilities for which provision is made herein, will provide free public education for children who reside on Indian lands, and whose membership in the schools of such agency has not formed and will not form the basis for payments under other provisions of this Act, and that the total number of such children represents a substantial percentage of the total number of children for whom such agency provides free public education, or that such Indian lands constitute a substantial part of the school district of such local educational agency, or that the total number of such

children who reside on Indian lands located outside the school district of such agency equals or exceeds one hundred; and

"(2) the immunity of such Indian lands to taxation by such agency has created a substantial and continuing impairment of

its ability to finance needed school facilities; he may, upon such terms and in such amounts (subject to the provisions of this section) as the Commissioner may consider to be in the public interest, provide the additional assistance necessary to enable such agency to provide the minimum school facilities required for free public education of children in the membership of the schools of such agency who reside on Indian lands; but such additional assistance may not exceed the portion of the cost of constructing such facilities which the Commissioner estimates has not been, and is not to be, recovered by the local educational agency from other sources, including payments by the United States under any other provisions of this Act or any other law. Notwithstanding the provisions of this subsection, the Commissioner may waive the percentage requirement in paragraph (1) whenever, in his judgment, exceptional circumstances exist which make such action necessary to avoid inequity and avoid defeating the purposes of this section. Assistance may be furnished under this subsection without regard to paragraph (2) (but subject to the other provisions of this subsection and subsection (d) to any local educational agency which provides free public education for children who reside on Indian lands located outside its school district. For purposes of this subsection 'Indian lands' means Indian reservations or other real property referred to in the second sentence of section 15(1)."
