(1) The Federal City College and the Washington Technical Institute shall each be considered to be a college established for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic arts in accordance with the provisions of the Act of July 2, 1862 (7 U.S.C. §§ 301-305, 307, 308); and

(2) The term “state” as used in such Act of May 8, 1914, shall include the District of Columbia, except that the District of Columbia shall not be eligible to receive any sums appropriated under 7 U.S.C. § 343.

(b) In lieu of an authorization of appropriations for the District of Columbia under 7 U.S.C. § 343, there is authorized to be appropriated to the District of Columbia such sums as may be necessary to provide cooperative agricultural extension work in the District of Columbia under such Act.

Any reference in such Act (other than 7 U.S.C. § 343) to funds appropriated under such Act shall in the case of the District of Columbia be considered a reference to funds appropriated under this subsection.

(c) Four per centum of the sums appropriated under subsection (b) of this section for each fiscal year shall be allotted to the Federal Extension Service of the Department of Agriculture for administrative, technical, and other services provided by the Service in carrying out the purposes of this section.
