**Proof.**
Of course (2) implies (1). Let $p : L \to X$ be as in Lemma 42.31.2 and let $o : X \to L$ be the zero section. Denote $p' : L' \to X'$ and $o' : X' \to L'$ their base changes. By Lemma 42.31.4 we have

\[ p^*(c_1(\mathcal{L}) \cap \alpha ) = - o_* \alpha \quad \text{and}\quad (p')^*(c_1(f^*\mathcal{L}) \cap \alpha ') = - o'_* \alpha ' \]

Since $c$ is a bivariant class we have

\begin{align*} (p')^*(c \cap c_1(\mathcal{L}) \cap \alpha ) & = c \cap p^*(c_1(\mathcal{L}) \cap \alpha ) \\ & = - c \cap o_* \alpha \\ & = - o'_*(c \cap \alpha ) \\ & = (p')^*(c_1(f^*\mathcal{L}) \cap c \cap \alpha ) \end{align*}

Since $(p')^*$ is injective by one of the lemmas cited above we obtain $c \cap c_1(\mathcal{L}) \cap \alpha = c_1(f^*\mathcal{L}) \cap c \cap \alpha $. The same is true after any base change by $Y \to X$ locally of finite type and hence we have the equality of bivariant classes stated in (2).
$\square$
