Notwithstanding any other provision of law— 31 USC 1301 (1) no amount may be transferred from an appropriation note, account for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education except as authorized in this or any subsequent appropriation act, or in the Act establishing the program or activity for which funds are contained in this Act; (2) no department, agency, or other entity, other than the one responsible for administering the program or activity for which an appropriation is made in this Act, may exercise authority for the timing of the obligation and expenditure of such appropriation, or for the purposes for which it is obligated and expended, except to the extent and in the manner otherwise provided in sections 1512 and 1513 of title 31, United States Code; and (3) no funds provided under this Act shall be available for the salary (or any part thereof) of an employee who is reassigned on a temporary detail basis to another position in the employing agency or department or in any other agency or department, unless the detail is independently approved by the head of the employing department or agency. SEC. 510. LIMITATION ON USE OF FUNDS.— None of the funds made available in this Act may be used for the expenses of an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) task force. SEC. 511. None of the funds made available in this Act may be used to enforce the requirements of section 428(b)(l)(U)(iii) of the Higher Education Act of 1965 with respect to any lender when it is made known to the Federal official having authority to obligate or expend such funds that the lender has a loan portfolio under part B of title IV of such Act that is equal to or less than $5,000,000. SEC. 512. None of the funds made available in this Act may be used for Pell Grants under subpart 1 of part A of title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to students attending an institution of higher education that is ineligible to participate in a loan program under such title as a result of a final default rate determination made by the Secretary under the Federal Family Education Loan or Federal Direct Loan program under parts B and D of such title, respectively, and issued by the Secretary on or after February 14, 1996. The preceding sentence shall not apply to an institution that (1) was not participating in either such loan program on such date (or would not have been participating on such date but for the pendency of an appeal of a default rate determination issued prior to such date) unless the institution subsequently participates in either such loan program; or (2) has a participation rate index (as defined at 34 CFR 668.17) that is less than or equal to 0.0375. No institution may be subject to the terms of this section unless it has had the opportunity to appeal its default rate determination under regulations issued by the Secretary for the FFEL and Federal Direct Loan Programs.
