                 TITLE I--THE PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO

<<NOTE: 16 USC 460bb note.>> SEC. 101. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds that--
            (1) the Presidio, located amidst the incomparable scenic 
        splendor of the Golden Gate, is one of America's great natural 
        and historic sites;
            (2) the Presidio is the oldest continuously operated 
        military post in the Nation dating from 1776, and was designated 
        a National Historic Landmark in 1962;
            (3) preservation of the cultural and historic integrity of 
        the Presidio for public use recognizes its significant role in 
        the history of the United States;
            (4) the Presidio, in its entirety, is a part of the Golden 
        Gate National Recreation Area, in accordance with Public Law 92-
        589;
            (5) as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the 
        Presidio's significant natural, historic, scenic, cultural, and 
        recreational resources must be managed in a manner which is 
        consistent with sound principles of land use planning and 
        management, and which protects the Presidio from development and 
        uses which would destroy the scenic beauty and historic and 
        natural character of the area and cultural and recreational 
        resources;
            (6) removal and/or replacement of some structures within the 
        Presidio must be considered as a management option in the 
        administration of the Presidio; and
            (7) the Presidio will be managed through an innovative 
        public/private partnership that minimizes cost to the United 
        States Treasury and makes efficient use of private sector 
        resources.
<<NOTE: 16 USC 460bb note.>> SEC. 102. AUTHORITY AND 
                        RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SECRETARY OF THE

    (a) Interim Authority.--The Secretary of the Interior (hereinafter 
in this title referred to as the ``Secretary'') is authorized to manage 
leases in existence on the date of this Act for properties under the 
administrative jurisdiction of the Secretary and located at the 
Presidio. Upon the expiration of any such lease, the Secretary may 
extend such lease for a period terminating not later than 6 months after 
the first meeting of the Presidio Trust. The Secretary may not enter 
into any new leases for property at the Presidio to be transferred to 
the Presidio Trust under this title, however, the Secretary is 
authorized to enter into agreements for use and occupancy of the 
Presidio properties which are assignable to the Trust and are terminable 
with 30 days notice. Prior to the transfer of administrative 
jurisdiction over any property to the Presidio Trust, and 
notwithstanding section 1341 of title 31 of the United

[[Page 110 STAT. 4098]]

States Code, the proceeds from any such lease shall be retained by the 
Secretary and such proceeds shall be available, without further 
appropriation, for the preservation, restoration, operation and 
maintenance, improvement, repair and related expenses incurred with 
respect to Presidio properties. The Secretary may adjust the rental 
charge on any such lease for any amounts to be expended by the lessee 
for preservation, maintenance, restoration, improvement, repair and 
related expenses with respect to properties and infrastructure within 
the Presidio.
    (b) Public Information and Interpretation.--The Secretary shall be 
responsible, in cooperation with the Presidio Trust, for providing 
public interpretive services, visitor orientation and educational 
programs on all lands within the Presidio.
    (c) Other.--Those lands and facilities within the Presidio that are 
not transferred to the administrative jurisdiction of the Presidio Trust 
shall continue to be managed by the Secretary. The Secretary and the 
Presidio Trust shall cooperate to ensure adequate public access to all 
portions of the Presidio. Any infrastructure and building improvement 
projects that were funded prior to the enactment of this Act shall be 
completed by the National Park Service.
    (d) Park Service Employees.--(1) Any career employee of the National 
Park Service, employed at the Presidio at the time of the transfer of 
lands and facilities to the Presidio Trust, shall not be separated from 
the Service by reason of such transfer, unless such employee is employed 
by the Trust, other than on detail. Notwithstanding section 3503 of 
title 5, United States Code, the Trust shall have sole discretion over 
whether to hire any such employee or request a detail of such employee.
    (2) Any career employee of the National Park Service employed at the 
Presidio on the date of enactment of this title shall be given priority 
placement for any available position within the National Park System 
notwithstanding any priority reemployment lists, directives, rules, 
regulations or other orders from the Department of the Interior, the 
Office of Management and Budget, or other Federal agencies.

necessary for the immediate administration of the properties to be 
transferred, and the Secretary shall immediately transfer such personal

SEC. 212. CUPRUM, IDAHO RELIEF.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds and declares that:
            (1) In 1899, the citizens of Cuprum, Idaho, commissioned 
        E.S. Hesse to conduct a survey describing these lands occupied 
        by their community. The purpose of this survey was to provide a 
        basis for the application for a townsite patent.
            (2) In 1909, the Cuprum Townsite patent (Number 52817) was 
        granted, based on an aliquot parts description which was 
        intended to circumscribe the Hesse survey.
            (3) Since the day of the patent, the Hesse survey has been 
        used continuously by the community of Cuprum and by Adams 
        County, Idaho, as the official townsite plat and basis for 
        conveyance of title within the townsite.
            (4) Recent boundary surveys conducted by the United States 
        Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, and the United States 
        Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, 
        discovered inconsistencies between the official aliquot parts 
        description of the patented Cuprum Townsite and the Hesse 
        survey. Many lots along the south and east boundaries of the 
        townsite are now known to extend onto National Forest System 
        lands outside the townsite.
            (5) It is the determination of Congress that the original 
        intent of the Cuprum Townsite application was to include all the 
        lands described by the Hesse survey.

    (b) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this section to amend the 1909 
Cuprum Townsite patent to include those additional lands described by 
the Hesse survey in addition to other lands necessary to provide an 
administratively acceptable boundary to the National Forest System.
    (c) Amendment of Patent.--The 1909 Cuprum Townsite patent is hereby 
amended to include parcels 1 and 2, identified on the plat, marked as 
``Township 20 North, Range 3 West, Boise Meridian, Idaho, Section 10: 
Proposed Patent Adjustment Cuprum Townsite, Idaho'' prepared by Payette 
N.F.--Land Survey Unit, drawn and approved by Tom Betzold, Forest Land 
Surveyor, on April 25, 1995. Such additional lands are hereby conveyed 
to the original patentee, Pitts Ellis, trustee, and Probate Judge of

[[Page 110 STAT. 4111]]

Washington County, Idaho, or any successors or assigns in interest in 
accordance with State law. The Secretary of Agriculture may correct

<<NOTE: 16 USC 410hh note.>> SEC. 302. ANAKTUVUK PASS LAND EXCHANGE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (94 
        Stat. 2371), enacted on December 2, 1980, established Gates of 
        the Arctic National Park and Preserve and Gates of the Arctic 
        Wilderness. The Village of Anaktuvuk Pass, located in the 
        highlands of the central Brooks Range is virtually surrounded by 
        these national park and wilderness lands and is the only Native 
        village located within the boundary of a National Park System 
        unit in Alaska.
            (2) Unlike most other Alaskan Native communities, the 
        village of Anaktuvuk Pass is not located on a major river, lake, 
        or coastline that can be used as a means of access. The 
        residents of Anaktuvuk pass have relied increasingly on snow 
        machines in winter and all-terrain vehicles in summer

[[Page 110 STAT. 4118]]

        as their primary means of access to pursue caribou and other 
        subsistence resources.
            (3) In a 1983 land exchange agreement, linear easements were 
        reserved by the Inupiat Eskimo people for use of all-terrain 
        vehicles across certain national park lands, mostly along stream 
        and river banks. These linear easements proved unsatisfactory, 
        because they provided inadequate access to subsistence resources 
        while causing excessive environmental impact from concentrated 
        use.
            (4) The National Park Service and the Nunamiut Corporation 
        initiated discussions in 1985 to address concerns over the use 
        of all-terrain vehicles on park and wilderness land. These 
        discussions resulted in an agreement, originally executed in 
        1992 and thereafter amended in 1993 and 1994, among the National 
        Park Service, Nunamiut Corporation, the City of Anaktuvuk Pass, 
        and Arctic Slope Regional Corporation. Full effectuation of this 
        agreement, as amended, by its terms requires ratification by the 
        Congress.

    (b) Ratification of agreement.--
            (1) Ratification.--
                    (A) In general.--The terms, conditions, procedures,

                and Interests in Lands and Wilderness Redesignation 
                Agreement Among Arctic Slope Regional Corporation, 
                Nunamiut Corporation, City of Anaktuvuk Pass and the 
                United States of America'' (hereinafter referred to in 
                this section as ``the Agreement''), executed by the 
                parties on December 17, 1992, as amended, are hereby 
                incorporated in this title, are ratified and confirmed, 
                and set forth the obligations and commitments of the 
                United States, Arctic Slope Regional Corporation, 
                Nunamiut Corporation and the City of Anaktuvuk Pass, as 
                a matter of Federal law.
                    (B) Land acquisition.--Lands acquired by the United 
                States pursuant to the Agreement shall be administered 
                by the Secretary of the Interior (hereinafter referred 
                to as the ``Secretary'') as part of Gates of the Arctic 
                National Park and Preserve, subject to the laws and 
                regulations applicable thereto.

        through I to the Agreement depict the lands subject to the 
        conveyances, retention of surface access rights, access 
        easements and all-terrain vehicle easements. These lands are

        not generating receipts to the Federal Government in excess of 
        $1,000,000 per year, then the Secretary may exchange the Federal 
        property for that portion of the Selection Rights having a value 
        equal to that of the Federal property. The remaining selection 
        rights shall remain available for additional exchanges.
            (C) For the purposes of any exchange to be consummated under 
        this section, if less than all the selection rights are being 
        exchanged, then the value of the selection rights being 
        exchanged shall be equal to the number of acres of selection 
        rights being exchanged multiplied by a fraction, the numerator 
        of which is the value of all the selection rights as determined

[[Page 110 STAT. 4122]]

        pursuant to subsection (b) hereof and the denominator of which 
        is the total number of acres of selection rights.
            (2) Additional exchanges.--If, after 10 years from the date 
        of the enactment of this section, the Secretary was unable to 
        conclude such exchanges as may be required to acquire all of the 
        selection rights, he shall conclude exchanges for the remaining 
        selection rights for such Federal property as may be identified 
        by Koniag, which property is available for transfer to the 
        administrative jurisdiction of the Secretary under any provision 
        of law and which property, at the time of the proposed transfer 
        to Koniag is not generating receipts of the Federal Government 
        in excess of $1,000,000 per year. The Secretary shall keep 
        Koniag advised in a timely manner as to which properties may be 
        available for such transfer. Upon receipt of such identification 
        by Koniag, the Secretary shall request in a timely manner the 
        transfer of such identified property to the administrative 
        jurisdiction of the Department of the Interior. Such property 
        shall not be subject to the geographic limitations of section 
        206(b) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and may be 
        retained by the Secretary solely for purposes of transferring it 
        to Koniag to complete the exchange. Should the value of the 
        property so identified by Koniag be in excess of the value of 
        the remaining selection rights, then Koniag shall have the 
        option of (A) declining to proceed with the exchange and 
        identifying other property, or (B) paying the difference in 
        value between the property rights.
            (3) Revenues.--Any property received by Koniag in an 
        exchange entered into pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) shall be 
        deemed to be an interest in the subsurface for purposes of 
        section 7(i) of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (43 
        U.S.C. 1601 et seq.): Provided however, That should Koniag make 
        a payment to equalize the value in any such exchange, then 
        Koniag will be deemed to hold an undivided interest in the 
        property equal in value to such payment which interest shall not 
        be subject to the provisions of section 7(i) of that Act.

    (d) Authority To Appoint and Remove Trustee.--In establishing a 
Settlement Trust under section 39 of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement 
Act (43 U.S.C. 1629c), Koniag may delegate, in whole or in part, the 
authority granted to Koniag under subsection (b)(2) of such section to 
any entity that Koniag may select without affecting the status of the 
trust as a Settlement Trust under such section.

        lands under paragraph (1), as are of approximate equal value to 
        the Federal selected lands:
                    (A) Certain lands located within the exterior 
                boundaries of the Cache National Forest in Weber County, 
                Utah, which comprise approximately 640 acres and are

                generally depicted on a map entitled ``North Fork Ogden 
                River--Devil's Gate Valley'', dated October 1995.
                    (E) Such additional offered lands in the State of 
                Utah as may be necessary to make the values of the lands 
                exchanged pursuant to this section approximately equal, 
                and which are acceptable to the Secretary.
            (3) Substitution of offered lands.--If one or more of the 
        precise offered land parcels identified in subparagraphs (A) 
        through (D) of paragraph (2) is unable to be conveyed to the 
        United States due to appraisal or other reasons, or if the 
        Secretary and the Sun Valley Company mutually agree and the 
        Secretary determines that an alternative offered land package 
        would better serve long-term public needs and objectives, the 
        Sun Valley Company may simultaneously convey

[[Page 110 STAT. 4124]]

        to the United States alternative offered lands in the State of 
        Utah acceptable to the Secretary in lieu of any or all of the 
        lands identified in subparagraphs (A) through (D) of paragraph 
        (2).
            (4) Valuation and appraisals.--(A) Values of the lands to be 
        exchanged pursuant to this section shall be equal as determined 
        by the Secretary utilizing nationally recognized appraisal 
        standards and in accordance with section 206 of the Federal Land 
        Policy and Management Act of 1976. The appraisal reports shall 
        be written to Federal standards as defined in the Uniform 
        Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions. If, due to 
        size, location, or use of lands exchanged under this section, 
        the values are not exactly equal, they shall be equalized by the 
        payment of cash equalization money to the Secretary or the Sun 
        Valley Company as appropriate in accordance with section 206(b) 
        of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 
        1716(b)). In order to expedite the consummation of the exchange 
        directed by this section, the Sun Valley Company shall arrange 
        and pay for appraisals of the offered and selected lands by a 
        qualified appraiser with experience in appraising similar 
        properties and who is mutually acceptable to the Sun Valley 
        Company and the Secretary. The appraisal of the Federal selected 
        lands shall be completed and submitted to the Secretary for 
        technical review and approval no later than 120 days after the 
        date of enactment of this Act, and the Secretary shall make a 
        determination of value not later than 30 days after receipt of 
        the appraisal. In the event the Secretary and the Sun Valley 
        Company are unable to agree to the appraised value of a certain 
        tract or tracts of land, the appraisal, appraisals, or appraisal 
        issues in dispute and a final determination of value shall be 
        resolved through a process of bargaining or submission to 
        arbitration in accordance with section 206(d) of the Federal 
        Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1716(d)).
            (B) In order to expedite the appraisal of the Federal 
        selected lands, such appraisal shall--
                    (i) value the land in its unimproved state, as a 
                single entity for its highest and best use as if in 
                private ownership and as of the date of enactment of 
                this Act;
                    (ii) consider the Federal lands as an independent 
                property as though in the private marketplace and 
                suitable for development to its highest and best use;
                    (iii) consider in the appraisal any encumbrance on 
                the title anticipated to be in the conveyance to Sun 
                Valley Company and reflect its effect on the fair market 
                value of the property; and
                    (iv) not reflect any enhancement in value to the 
                Federal selected lands based on the existence of private 
                lands owned by the Sun Valley Company in the vicinity of 
                the Snowbasin Ski Resort, and shall assume that private 
                lands owned by the Sun Valley Company are not available 
                for use in conjunction with the Federal selected lands.

    (d) General Provisions Relating to the Exchange.--
            (1) In general.--The exchange authorized by this section 
        shall be subject to the following terms and conditions:
                    (A) Reserved rights-of-way.--In any deed issued 
                pursuant to subsection (c)(1), the Secretary shall 
                reserve

[[Page 110 STAT. 4125]]

                in the United States a right of reasonable access across 
                the conveyed property for public access and for 
                administrative purposes of the United States necessary 
                to manage adjacent federally-owned lands. The terms of 
                such reservation shall be prescribed by the Secretary 
                within 30 days after the date of the enactment of this 
                Act.
                    (B) Right of rescission.--This section shall not be 
                binding on either the United States or the Sun Valley 
                Company if, within 30 days after the final determination 
                of value of the Federal selected lands, the Sun Valley 
                Company submits to the Secretary a duly authorized and 
                executed resolution of the Company stating its intention 
                not to enter into the exchange authorized by this 
                section.
            (2) Withdrawal.--Subject to valid existing rights, effective 
        on the date of enactment of this Act, the Federal selected lands 
        described in subsection (c)(1) and all National Forest System 
        lands currently under special use permit to the Sun Valley 
        Company at the Snowbasin Ski Resort are hereby withdrawn from 
        all forms of appropriation under the public land laws (including 
        the mining laws) and from disposition under all laws pertaining 
        to mineral and geothermal leasing.
            (3) Deed.--The conveyance of the offered lands to the United 
        States under this section shall be by general warranty or other 
        deed acceptable to the Secretary and in conformity with 
        applicable title standards of the Attorney General of the United 
        States.
            (4) Status of lands.--Upon acceptance of title by the 
        Secretary, the land conveyed to the United States pursuant to 
        this section shall become part of the Wasatch or Cache National 
        Forests as appropriate, and the boundaries of such National 
        Forests shall be adjusted to encompass such lands. Once 
        conveyed, such lands shall be managed in accordance with the Act 
        of March 1, 1911, as amended (commonly known as the ``Weeks 
        Act''), and in accordance with the other laws, rules and 
        regulations applicable to National Forest System lands. This 
        paragraph does not limit the Secretary's authority to adjust the 
        boundaries pursuant to section 11 of the Act of March 1, 1911 
        (``Weeks Act''). For the purposes of section 7 of the Land and 
        Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965 (16 U.S.C. 460l-9), the 
        boundaries of the Wasatch and Cache National Forests, as 
        adjusted by this section, shall be considered to be boundaries 
        of the forests as of January 1, 1965.

    (e) Phase Facility Construction and Operation.--
            (1) Phase i facility finding and review.--(A) The Congress 
        has reviewed the Snowbasin Ski Area Master Development Plan 
        dated October 1995 (hereafter in this subsection referred to as 
        the ``Master Plan''). On the basis of such review, and review of 
        previously completed environmental and other resource studies 
        for the Snowbasin Ski Area, Congress hereby finds that the 
        ``Phase I'' facilities referred to in the Master Plan to be 
        located on National Forest System land after consummation of the 
        land exchange directed by this section are limited in size and 
        scope, are reasonable and necessary to accommodate the 2002 
        Olympics, and in some cases are required to provide for the 
        safety of skiing competitors and spectators.

[[Page 110 STAT. 4126]]

            (B) Within 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
        the Secretary and the Sun Valley Company shall review the Master 
        Plan insofar as such plan pertains to Phase I facilities which 
        are to be constructed and operated wholly or partially on 
        National Forest System lands retained by the Secretary after 
        consummation of the land exchange directed by this section. The 
        Secretary may modify such Phase I facilities upon mutual 
        agreement with the Sun Valley Company or by imposing conditions 
        pursuant to paragraph (2) of this subsection.
            (C) Within 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
        the Secretary shall submit the reviewed Master Plan on the Phase 
        I facilities, including any modifications made thereto pursuant 
        to subparagraph (B), to the Committee on Energy and Natural 
        Resources of the United States Senate and the Committee on 
        Resources of the United States House of Representatives for a 
        30-day review period. At the end of the 30-day period, unless 
        otherwise directed by Act of Congress, the Secretary may issue 
        all necessary authorizations for construction and operation of 
        such facilities or modifications thereof in accordance with the 
        procedures and provisions of paragraph (2) of this subsection.
            (2) Phase i facility approval, conditions, and timetable.--
        Within 120 days of receipt of an application by the Sun Valley 
        Company to authorize construction and operation of any 
        particular Phase I facility, facilities, or group of facilities, 
        the Secretary, in consultation with the Sun Valley Company, 
        shall authorize construction and operation of such facility, 
        facilities, or group of facilities, subject to the general 
        policies of the Forest Service pertaining to the construction 
        and operation of ski area facilities on National Forest System 
        lands and subject to reasonable conditions to protect National 
        Forest System resources. In providing authorization to construct 
        and operate a facility, facilities, or group of facilities, the 
        Secretary may not impose any condition that would significantly 
        change the location, size, or scope of the applied for Phase I 
        facility unless--
                    (A) the modification is mutually agreed to by the 
                Secretary and the Sun Valley Company; or
                    (B) the modification is necessary to protect health 
                and safety.
        Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to affect the 
        Secretary's responsibility to monitor and assure compliance with 
        the conditions set forth in the construction and operation 
        authorization.
            (3) Congressional directions.--Notwithstanding any other 
        provision of law, Congress finds that consummation of the land 
        exchange directed by this section and all determinations, 
        authorizations, and actions taken by the Secretary pursuant to 
        this section pertaining to Phase I facilities on National Forest 
        System lands, or any modifications thereof, to be 
        nondiscretionary actions authorized and directed by Congress and 
        hence to comply with all procedural and other requirements of 
        the laws of the United States. Such determinations, 
        authorizations, and actions shall not be subject to 
        administrative or judicial review.

[[Page 110 STAT. 4127]]

    (f) No Precedent.--Nothing in subsection (c)(4)(B) of this section 
relating to conditions or limitations on the appraisal of the Federal 
lands, or any provision of subsection (e), relating to the approval by 
the Congress or the Forest Service of facilities on National Forest 
System lands, shall be construed as a precedent for subsequent 
legislation.

SEC. 305. ARKANSAS AND OKLAHOMA LAND EXCHANGE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that:
            (1) The Weyerhaeuser Company has offered to the United 
        States Government an exchange of lands under which Weyerhaeuser 
        would receive approximately 48,000 acres of Federal land in 
        Arkansas and Oklahoma and all mineral interests and oil and gas 
        interests pertaining to these exchanged lands in which the 
        United States Government has an interest in return for conveying 
        to the United States lands owned by Weyerhaeuser consisting of 
        approximately 181,000 acres of forested wetlands and other 
        forest land of public interest in Arkansas and Oklahoma and all 
        mineral interests and all oil and gas interests pertaining to 
        48,000 acres of these 181,000 acres of exchanged lands in which 
        Weyerhaeuser has an interest, consisting of--
                    (A) certain lands in Arkansas (Arkansas Ouachita 
                lands) located near Poteau Mountain, Caney Creek 
                Wilderness, Lake Ouachita, Little Missouri Wild and 
                Scenic River, Flatside Wilderness and the Ouachita 
                National Forest;
                    (B) certain lands in Oklahoma (Oklahoma lands) 
                located near the McCurtain County Wilderness, the Broken 
                Bow Reservoir, the Glover River, and the Ouachita 
                National Forest; and
                    (C) certain lands in Arkansas (Arkansas Cossatot 
                lands) located on the Little and Cossatot Rivers and 
                identified as the ``Pond Creek Bottoms'' in the Lower 
                Mississippi River Delta section of the North American 
                Waterfowl Management Plan;
            (2) acquisition of the Arkansas Cossatot lands by the United 
        States will remove the lands in the heart of a critical wetland 
        ecosystem from sustained timber production and other 
        development;
            (3) the acquisition of the Arkansas Ouachita lands and the 
        Oklahoma lands by the United States for administration by the 
        Forest Service will provide an opportunity for enhancement of 
        ecosystem management of the National Forest System lands and 
        resources;
            (4) the Arkansas Ouachita lands and the Oklahoma lands have 
        outstanding wildlife habitat and important recreational values 
        and should continue to be made available for activities such as 
        public hunting, fishing, trapping, nature observation, 
        enjoyment, education, and timber management whenever these 
        activities are consistent with applicable Federal laws and land 
        and resource management plans; these lands, especially in the 
        riparian zones, also harbor endangered, threatened and sensitive 
        plants and animals and the conservation and restoration of these 
        areas are important to the recreational and educational public 
        uses and will represent a valuable ecological resource which 
        should be conserved;

[[Page 110 STAT. 4128]]

            (5) the private use of the lands the United States will 
        convey to Weyerhaeuser will not conflict with established 
        management objectives on adjacent Federal lands;
            (6) the lands the United States will convey to Weyerhaeuser

            1784 note.>> SEC. 311. KENAI NATIVES ASSOCIATION LAND 
            EXCHANGE.

    (a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the ``Kenai Natives 
Association Equity Act Amendments of 1996''.
    (b) Findings and Purpose.--
            (1) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
                    (A) The United States Fish and Wildlife Service and 
                Kenai Natives Association, Inc., have agreed to 
                transfers of certain land rights, in and near the Kenai 
                National Wildlife Refuge, negotiated as directed by 
                Public Law 102-458.

                by the Service are within the area impacted by the Exxon 
                Valdez oil spill of 1989, and these lands included 
                important habitat for various species of fish and 
                wildlife for which significant injury resulting from the 
                spill has been documented through the EVOS Trustee 
                Council restoration process. This analysis has indicated 
                that these lands generally have value for the 
                restoration of such injured natural resources as pink 
                salmon, dolly varden, bald eagles, river otters, and 
                cultural and archaeological resources. This analysis has 
                also indicated that these lands generally have high 
                value for the restoration of injured species that rely 
                on these natural resources, including wilderness 
                quality, recreation, tourism, and subsistence.
                    (C) Restoration of the injured species will benefit 
                from acquisition and the prevention of disturbances 
                which may adversely affect their recovery.
                    (D) It is in the public interest to complete the 
                conveyances provided for in this section.
            (2) Purpose.--The purpose of this section is to authorize

                      portions of the Swanson River Road West Tract and 
                      the Swanson River Road East Tract, where the

                      those portions of the Swanson River Road East 
                      Tract, comprising approximately 1,738.04 acres;

                      other development of the surface estate.
                          (iv) The nonexclusive right to excavate within 
                      the subsurface estate as reasonably necessary for 
                      structures, utilities, transportation systems, and 
                      other development of the surface estate on the 
                      SW\1/4\, section 21, T. 6 N., R. 9 W., Seward 
                      Meridian, Alaska, where the entire subsurface of 
                      the land is owned by the United States and which 
                      public lands shall continue to be withdrawn from 
                      mining following their removal from the Refuge 
                      boundary under paragraph (3)(A)(ii). The United 
                      States shall retain the ownership of all other 
                      sand and gravel located within the subsurface of 
                      this parcel.

[[Page 110 STAT. 4142]]

                          (v) The surface estate of approximately 280 
                      acres known as the Beaver Creek Selected Tract. 
                      This tract shall be conveyed to KNA in exchange 
                      for lands conveyed to the United States as

                    (C) Payment.--The United States shall make a total 
                cash payment to KNA for the above-described lands of 
                $4,443,000, contingent upon the appropriate approvals of 
                the Federal or State of Alaska EVOS Trustees (or both) 
                necessary for any expenditure of the EVOS settlement 
                funds.
                    (D) National register of historic places.--Upon 
                completion of the acquisition authorized in paragraph 
                (1), the Secretary shall, at no cost to KNA, in 
                coordination with KNA, promptly undertake to nominate 
                the Stephanka Tract to the National Register of Historic 
                Places, in recognition of the archaeological artifacts 
                from the original Dena'ina Settlement. If the Department 
                of the Interior establishes a historical, cultural, or 
                archaeological interpretive site, KNA shall have the 
                exclusive right to operate a Dena'ina interpretive site 
                on the Stephanka Tract under the regulations and 
                policies of the department. If KNA declines to operate 
                such a site, the department may do so under its existing 
                authorities. Prior to the department undertaking any 
                archaeological activities whatsoever on the Stephanka 
                Tract, KNA shall be consulted.
        <<NOTE: 16 USC 668dd note.>>     (3) General provisions.--
                    (A) Removal of kna lands from the national wildlife 
                refuge system.--
                          (i) Effective on the date of closing for the 
                      Acquisition Lands identified in paragraph (2)(B), 
                      all lands retained by or conveyed to KNA pursuant 
                      to this section, and the subsurface interests of 
                      CIRI underlying such lands shall be automatically 
                      removed from the National Wildlife Refuge System 
                      and shall neither be considered as part of the 
                      Refuge nor subject to any laws pertaining solely 
                      to lands within the boundaries of the Refuge. The 
                      conveyance restrictions imposed by section 22(g) 
                      of ANCSA (i) shall then be ineffective and cease 
                      to apply to such interests of KNA and CIRI, and 
                      (ii) shall not be applicable to the interests 
                      received by KNA in accordance with paragraph 
                      (2)(B) or to the CIRI interests underlying them. 
                      The Secretary shall adjust the boundaries of the 
                      Refuge so as to exclude all interests in lands 
                      retained or received in exchange by KNA in 
                      accordance with this section, including both 
                      surface and subsurface, and shall also exclude all 
                      interests currently held by CIRI. On lands within 
                      the Swanson River Road East Tract, the boundary 
                      adjustment shall only include the surface estate 
                      where the subsurface estate is retained by the 
                      United States.
                          (ii)(I) The Secretary, KNA, and CIRI shall 
                      execute an agreement within 45 days of the date of 
                      enactment of this section which preserves CIRI's 
                      rights under paragraph 1(B)(1) of the Terms and 
                      Conditions, addresses CIRI's obligations under 
                      such paragraph,

[[Page 110 STAT. 4143]]

                      and adequately addresses management issues 
                      associated with the boundary adjustment set forth 
                      in this section and with the differing interests 
                      in land resulting from enactment of this section.
                          (II) In the event that no agreement is 
                      executed as provided for in subclause (I), solely 
                      for the purposes of administering CIRI's rights 
                      under paragraph 1(B)(1) of the Terms and 
                      Conditions, the Secretary and CIRI shall be deemed 
                      to have retained their respective rights and 
                      obligations with respect to CIRI's subsurface 
                      interests under the requirements of the Terms and 
                      Conditions in effect on June 18, 1996. 
                      Notwithstanding the boundary adjustments made 
                      pursuant to this section, conveyances to KNA shall 
                      be deemed to remain subject to the Secretary's and 
                      CIRI's rights and obligations under paragraph 
                      1(B)(1) of the Terms and Conditions.
                          (iii) The Secretary is authorized to acquire 
                      by purchase or exchange, on a willing seller basis 
                      only, any lands retained by or conveyed to KNA. In 
                      the event that any lands owned by KNA are 
                      subsequently acquired by the United States, they 
                      shall be automatically included in the Refuge 
                      System. The laws and regulations applicable to 
                      Refuge lands shall then apply to these lands and 
                      the Secretary shall then adjust the boundaries 
                      accordingly.
                          (iv) Nothing in this section is intended to 
                      enlarge or diminish the authorities, rights, 
                      duties, obligations, or the property rights held 
                      by CIRI under the Terms and Conditions, or 
                      otherwise except as set forth in this section. In 
                      the event of the purchase by the United States of 
                      any lands from KNA in accordance with subparagraph 
                      (A)(ii), the United States shall reassume from KNA 
                      the rights it previously held under the Terms and 
                      Conditions and the provisions in any patent 
                      implementing section 22(g) of ANCSA will again 
                      apply.
                          (v) By virtue of implementation of this 
                      section, CIRI is deemed entitled to 1,207 acres of 
                      in-lieu subsurface entitlement under section 
                      12(a)(1) of ANCSA. Such entitlement shall be 
                      fulfilled in accordance with paragraph 1(B)(2)(A) 
                      of the Terms and Conditions.
                    (B) Maps and legal descriptions.--Maps and a legal 
                description of the lands described above shall be on 
                file and available for public inspection in the 
                appropriate offices of the United States Department of 
                the Interior, and the Secretary shall, no later than 90 
                days after enactment of this section, prepare a legal 
                description of the lands described in paragraph 
                (2)(A)(vii). Such maps and legal description shall have 
                the same force and effect as if included in the section, 
                except that the Secretary may correct clerical and 
                typographical errors.
                    (C) Acceptance.--KNA may accept the offer made in 
                this section by notifying the Secretary in writing of 
                its decision within 180 days of receipt of the offer. In 
                the event the offer is rejected, the Secretary shall 
                notify the Committee on Resources of the House of 
                Representatives and the Committee on Energy and Natural 
                Resources

[[Page 110 STAT. 4144]]

                and the Committee on Environment and Public Works of the 
                Senate.
                    (D) Final maps.--Not later than 120 days after the 
                conclusion of the acquisition authorized by paragraph 
                (1), the Secretary shall transmit a final report and 
                maps accurately depicting the lands transferred and

    (a) Findings and Purposes.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress finds that--
                    (A) the town of Nicodemus, in Kansas, has national

                established by African-Americans during the 
                Reconstruction period following the Civil War;
                    (B) the town of Nicodemus is symbolic of the pioneer 
                spirit of Afican-Americans who dared to leave the only 
                region they had been familiar with to seek personal 
                freedom and the opportunity to develop their talents and 
                capabilities; and
                    (C) the town of Nicodemus continues to be a valuable

                town of Nicodemus, Kansas; and
                    (B) to interpret the historical role of the town of 
                Nicodemus in the Reconstruction period in the context of 
                the experience of westward expansion in the United

<<NOTE: 16 USC 461 note.>> SEC. 607. WASHITA BATTLEFIELD.

    (a) Findings and Purposes.--
            (1) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
                    (A) the Battle of the Washita, November 27, 1868, 
                was one of the largest engagements between Plains tribes 
                and the United States Army on the Southern Great Plains. 
                The site is a registered National Historic Landmark;
                    (B) Lt. Colonel George A. Custer, leading the 7th 
                United States Cavalry, attacked the sleeping Cheyenne 
                village of peace chief Black Kettle. Custer's attack 
                resulted in more than 150 Indian casualties, many of 
                them women and children;
                    (C) the Battle of the Washita symbolizes the 
                struggle of the Southern Great Plains tribes to maintain 
                their traditional lifeways and not to submit to 
                reservation confinement; and
                    (D) the Washita battle site possesses a high degree 
                of integrity and the cultural landscape is essentially 
                intact. The Cheyenne village site has not been altered 
                substantially except by periodic flooding of the Washita 
                River.
            (2) Purposes.--The purposes of this section are to--
                    (A) recognize the importance of the Battle of the 
                Washita as a nationally significant element of frontier 
                military history and as a symbol of the struggles of the 
                Southern Great Plains tribes to maintain control of 
                their traditional use areas; and
                    (B) establish the site of the Battle of the Washita 
                as a national historic site and provide opportunities 
                for American Indian groups including the Cheyenne-
                Arapaho Tribe to be involved in the formulation of plans 
                and educational programs for the national historic site.

                    (B) To interpret the cultural and natural resources 
                of the historic site, providing for public understanding

                generations.
            (3) Consultation and training.--The Secretary, acting

    (a) The Secretary of Agriculture shall charge a rental charge for 
all ski area permits issued pursuant to section 3 of the National Forest 
Ski Area Permit Act of 1986 (16 U.S.C. 497b), the Act of March 4, 1915 
(38 Stat. 1101, chapter 144; 16 U.S.C. 497), or the 9th through 20th 
paragraphs under the heading ``SURVEYING THE PUBLIC LANDS'' under the 
heading ``UNDER THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR'' in the Act of June 4, 
1897 (30 Stat. 34, chapter 2), on National Forest System lands. Permit 
rental charges for permits issued pursuant to the National Forest Ski 
Area Permit Act of 1986 shall be calculated as set forth in subsection 
(b). Permit rental charges for existing ski area permits issued pursuant 
to the Act of March 4, 1915, and the Act of June 4, 1897, shall be 
calculated in accordance with those existing permits: Provided, That a 
permittee may, at the permittee's option, use the calculation method set 
forth in subsection (b).
    (b)(1) The ski area permit rental charge (SAPRC) shall be calculated 
by adding the permittee's gross revenues from lift ticket/year-round ski 
area use pass sales plus revenue from ski school operations (LT+SS) and 
multiplying such total by the slope transport feet percentage (STFP) on 
National Forest System land. That amount shall be increased by the gross 
year-round revenue from ancillary facilities (GRAF) physically located 
on national forest land, including all permittee or subpermittee 
lodging, food service, rental shops, parking and other ancillary 
operations, to determine the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) subject to the 
permit rental charge. The final rental charge shall be calculated by 
multiplying the AGR by the following percentages for each revenue 
bracket and adding the total for each revenue bracket:
            (A) 1.5 percent of all adjusted gross revenue below 
        $3,000,000;

[[Page 110 STAT. 4183]]

            (B) 2.5 percent for adjusted gross revenue between 
        $3,000,000 and $15,000,000;
            (C) 2.75 percent for adjusted gross revenue between 
        $15,000,000 and $50,000,000; and
            (D) 4.0 percent for the amount of adjusted gross revenue 
        that exceeds $50,000,000.

Utilizing the abbreviations indicated in this subsection the ski area 
         permit fee (SAPF) formula can be simply illustrated as:

    (2) In cases where ski areas are only partially located on national 
forest lands, the slope transport feet percentage on national forest 
land referred to in subsection (b)
shall be calculated as generally described in the Forest Service Manual 
in effect as of January 1, 1992. Revenues from Nordic ski operations 
shall be included or excluded from the rental charge calculation 
according to the percentage of trails physically located on national 
forest land.

    (3) In order to ensure that the rental charge remains fair and 
equitable to both the United States and the ski area permittees, the 
adjusted gross revenue figures for each revenue bracket in paragraph (1) 
shall be adjusted annually by the percent increase or decrease in the 
national Consumer Price Index for the preceding calendar year. No later 
than 3 years <<NOTE: Reports.>>  after the date of enactment of this Act 
and every 5 years thereafter the Secretary shall submit to the Committee 
on Energy and Natural Resources of the United States Senate and the 
Committee on Resources of the United States House of Representatives a 
report analyzing whether the ski area permit rental charge legislated by 
this Act is returning a fair market value rental to the United States 
together with any recommendations the Secretary may have for 
modifications of the system.

    (c) The rental charge set forth in subsection (b) shall be due on 
June 1 of each year and shall be paid or prepaid by the permittee on a 
monthly, quarterly, annual or other schedule as determined appropriate 
by the Secretary in consultation with the permittee. Unless mutually 
agreed otherwise by the Secretary and the permittee, the payment or 
prepayment schedule shall conform to the permittee's schedule in effect 
prior to enactment of this Act. To reduce costs to the permittee and the 
Forest Service, the Secretary shall each year provide the permittee with 
a standardized form and worksheets (including annual rental charge 
calculation brackets and rates) to be used for rental charge calculation 
and submitted with the rental charge payment. Information provided on 
such forms shall be compiled by the Secretary annually and kept in the 
Office of the Chief, United States Forest Service.
    (d) The ski area permit rental charge set forth in this section 
shall become effective on June 1, 1996 and cover receipts retroactive to 
June 1, 1995: Provided, That if a permittee has paid rental charges for 
the period June 1, 1995, to June 1, 1996, under the graduated rate 
rental charge system formula in effect prior to the date of enactment of 
this Act, such rental charges shall be credited toward the new rental 
charge due on June 1, 1996. In order to ensure increasing rental charge 
receipt levels to the United States during transition from the graduated 
rate rental charge system formula to the formula of this Act, the rental 
charge paid by any individual permittee shall be--

[[Page 110 STAT. 4184]]

            (1) for the 1995-1996 permit year, either the rental charge 
        paid for the preceding 1994-1995 base year or the rental charge 
        calculated pursuant to this Act, whichever is higher;
            (2) for the 1996-1997 permit year, either the rental charge 
        paid for the 1994-1995 base year or the rental charge calculated 
        pursuant to this Act, whichever is higher; and
            (3) for the 1997-1998 permit year, either the rental charge 
        for the 1994-1995 base year or the rental charge calculated 
        pursuant to this Act, whichever is higher.

If an individual permittee's adjusted gross revenue for the 1995-1996, 
1996-1997, or 1997-1998 permit years falls more than 10 percent below 
the 1994-1995 base year, the rental charge paid shall be the rental 
charge calculated pursuant to this Act.
    (e) Under no circumstances shall revenue, or subpermittee revenue 
(other than lift ticket, area use pass, or ski school sales) obtained 
from operations physically located on non-national forest land be 
included in the ski area permit rental charge calculation.
    (f) To reduce administrative costs of ski area permittees and the 
Forest Service the terms ``revenue'' and ``sales'', as used in this 
section, shall mean actual income
from sales and shall not include sales of operating equipment, refunds, 
rent paid to the permittee by sublessees, sponsor contributions to 
special events or any amounts attributable to employee gratuities or 
employee lift tickets, discounts, or other goods or services (except for 
bartered goods and complimentary lift tickets) for which the permittee 
does not receive money.

    (g) In cases where an area of national forest land is under a ski 
area permit but the permittee does not have revenue or sales qualifying 
for rental charge payment pursuant to subsection (a), the permittee 
shall pay an annual minimum rental charge of $2 for each national forest 
acre under permit or a percentage of appraised land value, as determined 
appropriate by the Secretary.
    (h) Where the new rental charge provided for in subsection (b)(1) 
results in an increase in permit rental charge greater than one-half of 
1 percent of the permittee's adjusted gross revenue as determined under 
subsection (b)(1), the new rental charge shall be phased in over a five-
year period in a manner providing for increases of approximately equal 
increments.
    (i) To reduce Federal costs in administering the provisions of this 
Act, the reissuance of a ski area permit to provide activities similar 
in nature and amount to the activities provided under the previous 
permit shall not constitute a major Federal action for the purposes of 
the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4331 et seq.).
    (j) Subject to valid existing rights, all lands located within the 
boundaries of ski area permits issued prior to, on or after the date of 
enactment of this Act pursuant to authority of the Act of March 4, 1915 
(38 Stat. 1101, chapter 144; 16 U.S.C. 497), and the Act of June 4, 
1897, or the National Forest Ski Area Permit Act of 1986 (16 U.S.C. 
497b) are hereby and henceforth automatically withdrawn from all forms 
of appropriation under the mining laws and from disposition under all 
laws pertaining to mineral and geothermal leasing and all amendments 
thereto. Such withdrawal shall continue for the full term of the permit 
and any modification, reissuance, or renewal thereof. Unless the 
Secretary requests otherwise of the Secretary of the Interior, such 
withdrawal shall be canceled automatically upon expiration or other

[[Page 110 STAT. 4185]]

termination of the permit and the land automatically restored to all 
appropriation not otherwise restricted under the public land laws.

            (2) Prior to noon on September 30, 2005, the Secretary shall

``Sixty percent of the fees paid by permittees for the privilege of 
entering into Glacier Bay for the period beginning on the first full

available--
            ``(1) to the extent determined necessary, to acquire and 
        preposition necessary and adequate emergency response equipment 
        to prevent harm or the threat of harm to aquatic park resources 
        from permittees; and
            ``(2) to conduct investigations to quantify any effect of 
        permittees' activity on wildlife and other natural resource 
        values of Glacier Bay National Park. The investigations provided 
        for in this subsection shall be designed to provide information 
        of value to the Secretary, in determining any appropriate 
        limitations on permittees' activity in Glacier Bay. The 
        Secretary may not impose any additional permittee operating 
        conditions in the areas of air, water, and oil pollution beyond 
        those determined and enforced by other appropriate agencies. 
        When competitively awarding permits to enter Glacier Bay, the 
        Secretary may take into account the relative impact particular 
        permittees will have on park values and resources, provided that 
        no operating conditions or limitations relating to noise 
        abatement shall be imposed unless the Secretary determines, 
        based on the weight of the evidence from all available studies 
        including verifiable scientific information from the 
        investigations provided for in this subsection, that such 
        limitations or conditions are necessary to protect park values 
        and resources. Fees paid by certain permittees for the privilege 
        of entering into Glacier Bay shall not exceed $5 per passenger. 
        For the purposes of this subsection, `certain permittee' shall

[[Page 110 STAT. 4186]]

        mean a permittee which provides overnight accommodations for at 
        least 500 passengers for an itinerary of at least 3 nights, and 
        `permittee' shall mean a concessionaire providing visitor 
        services within Glacier Bay. Nothing in this subsection 
        authorizes the Secretary to require additional categories of 
        permits in, or otherwise increase the number of permits to enter 
        Glacier Bay National Park.''.

                    (E) to eliminate unnecessary Government housing and 
                locate such housing as is required in a manner such that 
                primary resource values are not impaired.
            (2) General authority.--To enhance the ability of the 
        Secretary of the Interior (hereafter in this subsection referred 
        to as ``the Secretary''), acting through the Director of the 
        National Park Service, to effectively manage units of the 
        National Park System, the Secretary is authorized where 
        necessary and justified to make available employee housing, on 
        or off the lands under the administrative jurisdiction of the 
        National Park Service, and to rent or lease such housing to 
        field employees of the National Park Service at rates based on 
        the reasonable value of the housing in accordance with 
        requirements applicable under section 5911 of title 5, United 
        States Code.
            (3) Review and revision of housing criteria.--Upon the 
        enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall review and revise the 
        existing criteria under which housing is provided to employees 
        of the National Park Service. Specifically, the Secretary shall 
        examine the existing criteria with respect to what circumstances 
        the National Park Service requires an employee to occupy 
        Government quarters to provide necessary services, protect 
        Government property, or because of a lack of availability of 
        non-Federal housing in the geographic area.
            (4) Submission of report.--A report detailing the results of 
        the revisions required by paragraph (3) shall be submitted to 
        the Committee on Resources of the House of Representatives and 
        the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the Senate not 
        later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act. 
        The report shall include justifications for keeping, or for 
        changing, each of the criteria or factors used by the Department 
        of the Interior with regard to the provision of housing to 
        employees of the National Park Service.
            (5) Review of condition of and costs relating to housing.--
        Using the revised criteria developed under paragraph (3), the 
        Secretary shall undertake a review, for each

[[Page 110 STAT. 4191]]

        unit of the National Park System, of existing government-owned 
        housing provided to employees of the National Park Service. The 
        review shall include an assessment of the physical condition of 
        such housing and the suitability of such housing to effectively 
        carry out the missions of the Department of the Interior and the 
        National Park Service. For each unit of such housing, the 
        Secretary shall determine whether the unit is needed and 
        justified. The review shall include estimates of the cost of 
        bringing each unit that is needed and justified into usable 
        condition that meets all applicable legal housing requirements 
        or, if the unit is determined to be obsolete but is still 
        warranted to carry out the missions of the Department of the 
        Interior and the National Park Service, the cost of replacing 
        the unit.
            (6) Authorization for housing agreements.--For those units 
        of the National Park System for which the review required by 
        paragraphs (3) and (5) has been completed, the Secretary is 
        authorized, pursuant to the authorities contained in this 
        subsection and subject to the appropriation of necessary funds 
        in advance, to enter into housing agreements with housing 
        entities under which such housing entities may develop, 
        construct, rehabilitate, or manage housing, located on or off 
        public lands, for rent or lease to National Park Service 
        employees who meet the housing eligibility criteria developed by 
        the Secretary pursuant to this Act.
            (7) Joint public-private sector housing programs.--
                    (A) Lease to build program.--Subject to the 
                appropriation of necessary funds in advance, the

                      to qualified persons for the construction of field

                      years; and

                negotiated contracting procedures.
                    (C) Terms and conditions.--Each lease under 
                subparagraph (A)(i)--
                          (i) shall stipulate whether operation and 
                      maintenance of field employee quarters is to be 
                      provided by the lessee, field employees or the 
                      Federal Government;
                          (ii) shall require that the construction and 
                      rehabilitation of field employee quarters be done 
                      in accordance with the requirements of the 
                      National Park Service and local applicable 
                      building codes and industry standards;
                          (iii) shall contain such additional terms and 
                      conditions as may be appropriate to protect the 
                      Federal interest, including limits on rents the 
                      lessee may charge field employees for the 
                      occupancy of quarters, conditions on maintenance 
                      and repairs, and agreements on the provision of 
                      charges for utilities and other infrastructure; 
                      and
                          (iv) may be granted at less than fair market 
                      value if the Secretary determines that such lease 
                      will

[[Page 110 STAT. 4192]]

                      improve the quality and availability of field 
                      employee quarters available.
                    (D) Contributions by united states.--The Secretary 
                may make payments, subject to appropriations, or 
                contributions in kind either in advance of or on a 
                continuing basis to reduce the costs of planning,

                occupancy of field employee quarters constructed or 
                rehabilitated under such lease. A guarantee made under 
                this paragraph shall be in writing.
                    (B) Limitations.--The Secretary may not guarantee--
                          (i) the occupancy of more than 75 percent of 
                      the units constructed or rehabilitated under such 
                      lease; and
                          (ii) at a rental rate that exceeds the rate 
                      based on the reasonable value of the housing in 
                      accordance with requirements applicable under 
                      section 5911 of title 5, United States Code.
                In no event shall outstanding guarantees be in excess of

                    (C) Rental to government employees.--A guarantee may

                any units for which the guarantee is made
                    (D) Failure to maintain a satisfactory level of 
                operation and maintenance.--The lease shall be null and

[[Page 110 STAT. 4193]]

                applicable under section 5911 of title 5, United States 
                Code.
                    (B) Limitation.--The Secretary may only issue a 
                lease under subparagraph (A) if the Secretary finds that 
                there is a shortage of adequate and affordable seasonal 
                quarters at or near such unit and that--
                          (i) the requirement for such seasonal field 
                      employee quarters is temporary; or
                          (ii) leasing would be more cost effective than 
                      construction of new seasonal field employee 
                      quarters.
                    (C) Unrecovered costs.--The Secretary may pay the

                    (A) complete a condition assessment for all field 
                employee housing, including the physical condition of 
                such housing and the necessity and suitability of such 
                housing for carrying out the agency mission, using 
                existing information; and
                    (B) develop an agency-wide priority listing, by 
                structure, identifying those units in greatest
need for repair, rehabilitation, replacement, or initial construction.
            (13) Use of housing-related funds.--Expenditure of any funds 
        authorized and appropriated for new construction, repair, or 
        rehabilitation of housing under this section shall follow the 
        housing priority listing established by the agency under 
        paragraph (13), in sequential order, to the maximum extent 
        practicable.
            (14) Annual budget submittal.--The President's proposed 
        budget to Congress for the first fiscal year beginning after 
        enactment of this Act, and for each subsequent fiscal year,

        spent for National Park Service housing maintenance and 
        operations which are in addition to rental receipts collected.
            (15) Study of housing allowances.--Within 12 months after 
        the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall conduct a 
        study to determine the feasibility of providing eligible 
        employees of the National Park Service with housing allowances 
        rather than Government housing. The study shall specifically 
        examine the feasibility of providing rental allowances to 
        temporary and lower paid permanent employees. Whenever the 
        Secretary submits a copy of such study to the Office of 
        Management and Budget, he shall concurrently transmit copies of 
        the report to the Resources Committee of the United States House 
        of Representatives and the Committee on Energy and Natural 
        Resources of the United States Senate.
            (16) Study of sale of employee housing.--Within 18 months of 
        the date of the enactment of the Act, the Secretary shall 
        complete a study of the sale of Government quarters to a

        examine the potential benefits to the Government as well as the 
        employees and any risks associated with such a program.
            (17) General provisions.--

                adversely affect the mission of the agency.
                    (B) Rental rates.--To the extent practicable, the 
                Secretary shall establish rental rates for all quarters 
                occupied by field employees of the National Park Service 
                that are based on the reasonable value of the quarters 
                in accordance with requirements applicable under section 
                5911 of title 5, United States Code.

        (7)(A)(i)(I), any lease under paragraph (11)(B), and any lease 
        of seasonal quarters under subsection (l), shall be retained by 
        the National Park Service. Such proceeds shall be deposited into

the report, the Commission shall--
            ``(1) review the extent to which recreation components

    (a) In General.--The Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture 
(Secretaries) are hereby authorized and directed to consult, coordinate 
and cooperate with the Umpqua Land Exchange Project (ULEP), affected 
units and agencies of State and local government, and, as appropriate, 
the World Forestry Center and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, to 
assist ULEP's ongoing efforts in studying and analyzing land exchange 
opportunities in the Umpqua River basin and to provide scientific, 
technical, research, mapping and other assistance and information to 
such entities. Such consultation, coordination and cooperation shall at 
a minimum include, but not be limited to--
            (1) working with ULEP to develop or assemble comprehensive 
        scientific and other information (including comprehensive and

        resources of forest, plants, wildlife, fisheries (anadromous and 
        other), recreational opportunities, wetlands, riparian habitat 
        and other physical or natural resources;
            (2) working with ULEP to identify general or specific areas 
        within the basin where land exchanges could promote 
        consolidation of forestland ownership for long-term, sustained 
        timber production; protection and restoration of habitat for 
        plants, fish and wildlife (including any federally listed 
        threatened or endangered species); protection of drinking water 
        supplies; recovery of threatened and endangered species; 
        protection and restoration of wetlands, riparian lands and other 
        environmentally sensitive areas; consolidation of land ownership 
        for improved public access and a broad array of recreational 
        uses; and consolidation of land ownership to achieve management 
        efficiency and reduced costs of administration; and
        <<NOTE: Reports.>>     (3) developing a joint report for 
        submission to the Congress which discusses land exchange 
        opportunities in the basin and outlines either a specific land 
        exchange proposal or proposals which may merit consideration by 
        the Secretaries or the Congress, or ideas and recommendations 
        for new authorizations, direction, or changes in existing law or 
        policy to expedite and facilitate the consummation of beneficial 
        land exchanges in the basin via administrative means.

    (b) Matters for Specific Study.--In analyzing land exchange 
opportunities with ULEP, the Secretaries shall give priority to 
assisting ULEP's ongoing efforts in:
            (1) studying, identifying, and mapping areas where the 
        consolidation of land ownership via land
exchanges could promote the goals of long term species and watershed 
protection and utilization, including but not limited to the goals of 
the Endangered Species Act of 1973 more effectively than current land 
ownership patterns and whether any changes in law or policy applicable 
to such lands after consummation of an exchange would be advisable or 
necessary to achieve such goals;
            (2) studying, identifying and mapping areas where land 
        exchanges might be utilized to better satisfy the goals of 
        sustainable timber harvest, including studying whether changes

[[Page 110 STAT. 4232]]

        in existing law or policy applicable to such lands after 
        consummation of an exchange would be advisable or necessary to 
        achieve such goals;
            (3) identifying issues and studying options and 
        alternatives, including possible changes in existing law or 
        policy, to ensure that combined post-exchange revenues to units 
        of local government from State and local property, severance and 
        other taxes or levies and shared Federal land receipts will 
        approximate pre-exchange revenues;
            (4) identifying issues and studying whether possible changes 
        in law, special appraisal instruction, or changes in certain 
        Federal appraisal procedures might be advisable or necessary to 
        facilitate the appraisal of potential exchange lands which may 
        have special characteristics or restrictions affecting land 
        values;
            (5) identifying issues and studying options and 
        alternatives, including changes in existing laws or policy, for 
        achieving land exchanges without reducing the net supply of 
        timber available to small businesses;
            (6) identifying, mapping, and recommending potential changes 
        in land use plans, land classifications, or other actions which 
        might be advisable or necessary to expedite, facilitate or 
        consummate land exchanges in certain areas;
            (7) analyzing potential sources for new or enhanced Federal, 
        State, or other funding to promote improved resource protection, 
        species recovery, and management in the basin; and
            (8) identifying and analyzing whether increased efficiency 
        and better land and resource management could occur through 
        either consolidation of Federal forest management under one 
        agency or exchange of lands between the Forest Service and 
        Bureau of Land Management.

    (c) Report to Congress.--No later than February 1, 1998, ULEP and 
the Secretaries shall submit a joint report to the Committee on

 <<NOTE: Georgia. 16 USC 461 note.>> TITLE III--AUGUSTA CANAL NATIONAL 
HERITAGE AREA

SEC. 301. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds that--
            (1) the Augusta Canal National Landmark in the State of 
        Georgia, listed on the National Historic Register of Historic 
        Places, and designated by the Governor of Georgia as one of four 
        regionally important resources in the State, is one of the last 
        unspoiled areas in the State of Georgia;
            (2) the Augusta Canal National Historic Landmark possesses 
        excellent water quality, beautiful rural and historic cultural 
        landscapes, architecturally significant mill structures and mill 
        villages, and large acreages of parks and permanent open space;
            (3) three national historic districts, the Harrisburg, Laney 
        Walker, and Greene Street districts, and two national historic 
        landmarks, Stallings Island, located in the Savannah River, and 
        Meadow Garden, are connected by the Augusta Canal Area;
            (4) the beautiful rural landscapes and historic cultural 
        landscapes, scenic vistas and excellent water quality of the 
        Augusta Canal contain significant undeveloped recreational 
        opportunities for people throughout the United States;
            (5) the Augusta Canal and related mill sites, structures, 
        and associated neighborhoods are representatives of the 
        development of the cotton textile industry and associated 
        agriculture and trade in the South;
            (6) the transformation of the agrarian economy of the area 
        into an early industrial economy was precipitated by the 
        development and use of the Augusta Canal;
            (7) several significant sites associated with the American 
        Revolution, the Civil War, Native Americans, Colonial Americans, 
        African Americans, Chinese Americans, and Irish Americans are 
        located within the Augusta Canal area;
            (8) despite the efforts by the State of Georgia, political 
        subdivisions of the State, volunteer organizations, and private 
        businesses, the cultural, historical, natural, and recreational 
        resources of the area have not realized full potential and may 
        be lost without assistance from the Federal Government;
            (9) the Secretary of the Interior considers this landmark to 
        be threatened and has designated it a priority for protection;
            (10) many local, regional, and State agencies, businesses, 
        and private citizens have expressed an overwhelming desire to 
        combine forces to work cooperatively to preserve and enhance the 
        resources of the Augusta Canal National Historic Landmark and 
        better plan for its future; and
            (11) the Augusta Canal Authority, a public body established 
        under the law of the State of Georgia, would be an appropriate 
        management entity for a National Heritage Area established in 
        the area of the Augusta Canal.

1996. Pennsylvania. 16 USC 461 note.>> TITLE IV--STEEL INDUSTRY HERITAGE 
PROJECT

SEC. 401. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Steel Industry American Heritage 
Area Act of 1996''.

SEC. 402. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the industrial and cultural heritage of southwestern 
        Pennsylvania, including the city of Pittsburgh, and the counties 
        of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Washington, 
        and Westmoreland, related directly to steel and steel-related 
        industries, is nationally significant;
            (2) these industries include steelmaking, ironmaking, 
        aluminum, specialty metals, glass, coal mining, coke production, 
        machining and foundries, transportation, and electrical 
        industries;
            (3) the industrial and cultural heritage of the steel and 
        related industries in this region includes the social history 
        and living cultural traditions of the people of the region;
            (4) the labor movement of the region played a significant 
        role in the development of the Nation, including the formation 
        of many key unions such as the Congress of Industrial 
        Organizations (CIO) and the United Steel Workers of America 
        (USWA), and crucial struggles to improve wages and working 
        conditions, such as the Rail Strike of 1877, the Homestead 
        Strike of 1892, and the Great Steel Strike of 1919;

[[Page 110 STAT. 4253]]

            (5) the Department of the Interior is responsible for 
        protecting the Nation's cultural and historic resources, and 
        there are significant examples of these resources within this 
        seven-county region to merit the involvement of the Federal 
        Government to develop programs and projects, in cooperation with 
        the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation, the Commonwealth of 
        Pennsylvania, and other local and governmental bodies, to 
        adequately conserve, protect, and interpret this heritage for 
        future generations, while providing opportunities for education 
        and revitalization; and
            (6) the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation would be an 
        appropriate management entity for a Heritage Area established in 
        the region.

    (b) Statement of Purpose.--The objectives of the Steel Industry 
American Heritage Area are--
            (1) to foster a close working relationship with all levels 
        of government, the private sector, and the local communities in 
        the steel industry region of southwestern Pennsylvania and 
        empower the communities to conserve their heritage while 
        continuing to pursue economic opportunities; and
            (2) to conserve, interpret, and develop the historical, 
        cultural, natural, and recreational resources related to the 
        industrial and cultural heritage of the seven-county region of 
        southwestern Pennsylvania.

HERITAGE AREA

SEC. 501. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) Essex County, Massachusetts, was host to a series of 
        historic events that influenced the course of the early 
        settlement of the United States; its emergence as a maritime 
        power; and its subsequent industrial development;
            (2) the North Shore of Essex County and the Merrimack River 
        valley in Essex County contain examples of significant early 
        American architecture and significant Federal-period 
        architecture, many sites and buildings associated with the 
        establishment of the maritime trade in the United States, the 
        site of the witchcraft trials of 1692, the birthplace of 
        successful iron manufacture, and the establishment of the 
        textile and leather industries in and around the cities of 
        Peabody, Beverly, Lynn, Lawrence, and Haverhill;
            (3) Salem, Massachusetts, has a rich heritage as one of the 
        earliest landing sites of the English colonists, the first major 
        world harbor for the United States, and an early thriving hub of 
        American industries;
            (4) the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site is the site 
        of the first sustained, integrated iron works in Colonial 
        America, and the technology employed at the Iron Works was 
        dispersed throughout the Colonies and was critical to the 
        development of industry and technology in America;
            (5) the Salem Maritime National Historic Site contains 
        nationally significant resources that explain the manner in 
        which the Nation was settled, its evolution into a maritime 
        power, and its development as a major industrial force;
            (6) the story told at the Salem Maritime and Saugus Iron 
        Works National Historic Sites would be greatly enhanced through 
        the interpretation of significant theme-related resources in 
        Salem and Saugus and throughout Essex County;
            (7) partnerships between the private and public sectors have 
        been created and additional partnerships will be encouraged to 
        preserve the rich cultural heritage of the region, which will 
        stimulate cultural awareness, preservation, and economic 
        development through tourism;
            (8) a visitors' center that has already been constructed at 
        the Salem Maritime National Historic Site in Salem, 
        Massachusetts, will be available to interpret the themes of the 
        Essex National Heritage Area established by this title and to 
        coordinate the interpretive and preservation activities of the 
        Area; and
            (9) the resident and business communities of the region have 
        formed the Essex Heritage Ad Hoc Commission for the 
        preservation, interpretation, promotion, and development of the

        benefit of the public the historic, cultural, and natural 
        resources of the North Shore and lower Merrimack River valley in 
        Essex County, Massachusetts, which encompass the three primary 
        themes of the Salem Maritime National Historic Site and Saugus 
        Iron Works National Historic Site (the histories of early 
        settlement, maritime trade, and the textile and leather 
        industries);

        Commonwealth of Massachusetts and its units of local government 
        in the development and implementation of an integrated cultural, 
        historical, and land resource management program in order to

   <<NOTE: Iowa. 16 USC 461 note.>> TITLE VII--AMERICA'S AGRICULTURAL 
HERITAGE PARTNERSHIP

SEC. 701. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) The Congress finds that--
            (1) the city of Waterloo, Iowa, and northeast Iowa posses 
        many important elements of the nationally significant story of 
        American agriculture, including Native American agriculture, 
        agricultural mechanization, seed hybridization, farm cooperative 
        movements, rural electrification, farm-to-market systems, rural 
        to urban migration, veterinary practice, food processing and 
        preservation, national farm organizations, international hunger 
        relief, and the development of national and international 
        agribusiness;

[[Page 110 STAT. 4265]]

            (2) these resources offer outstanding and unique 
        opportunities to acknowledge and appreciate the development of 
        American agriculture;
            (3) the National Park Service has determined that the story 
        of American agriculture is nationally significant, that 
        northeast Iowa is an ideal place to tell that story, and that 
        this story could be divided into 4 principal topics for 
        interpretation in northeast Iowa: the Amazing Science of 
        Agriculture, Agriculture as a Way of Life, Organizing for 
        Survival, and Crops from Field to Table;
            (4) the responsibility for interpreting, retaining, 
        enhancing, and promoting the resources, values, and amenities of 
        Waterloo, Iowa, and northeast Iowa resides with volunteer 
        associations, private businesses, political subdivisions of the 
        State, and the State of Iowa; and
            (5) despite the efforts by volunteer associations, private 
        businesses, political subdivisions of the State, and the State 
        of Iowa, the cultural and historical resources of the area have 
        not realized full potential and may be lost without some 
        assistance from the Federal Government.

    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this title are--
            (1) to interpret, retain, enhance, and promote the unique 
        and significant contributions to national and international 
        agriculture of certain natural, historic, and cultural resources 
        within Waterloo, Iowa, and northeast Iowa;
            (2) to provide a partnership management framework to assist 
        volunteer associations, private businesses, political 
        subdivisions of the State, and the State of Iowa in developing 
        and implementing Management Plan policies and programs that will 
        assist in the interpretation, retention, enhancement, and 
        promotion of the cultural, natural, and recreational resources 
        of northeast Iowa;
            (3) to allow for local, State, and Federal contributions 
        through limited grants and technical assistance to create 
        America's Agricultural Heritage Partnership through cooperative 
        agreements among volunteer associations, private businesses, 
        political subdivisions of the State, the State of Iowa, and 
        residents of the area; and
            (4) to provide for an economically self-sustaining 
        Partnership for the educational and inspirational benefit of 
        current and future generations concerning the story of American 
        agriculture.

<<NOTE: Ohio & Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor Act of 1996. 16 USC 
461 note.>> TITLE VIII--OHIO & ERIE CANAL NATIONAL HERITAGE CORRIDOR

SEC. 801. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Ohio & Erie Canal National Heritage 
Corridor Act of 1996''.

SEC. 802. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Ohio & Erie Canal, which opened for commercial 
        navigation in 1832, was the first inland waterway to connect the 
        Great Lakes at Lake Erie with the Gulf of Mexico via the Ohio 
        and Mississippi Rivers and a part of a canal network in Ohio 
        that was one of America's most extensive and successful systems 
        during a period in history when canals were essential to the 
        Nation's growth.
            (2) The Ohio & Erie Canal spurred economic growth in the 
        State of Ohio that took the State from near bankruptcy to the 
        third most economically prosperous State in the Union in just 20 
        years.

[[Page 110 STAT. 4268]]

            (3) A 4-mile section of the Ohio & Erie Canal was designated 
        a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and other portions of the 
        Ohio & Erie Canal and many associated structures were placed on 
        the National Register of Historic Places.
            (4) In 1974, 19 miles of the Ohio & Erie Canal were declared 
        nationally significant under National Park Service new area 
        criteria with the designation of Cuyahoga Valley National 
        Recreation Area.
            (5) The National Park Service found the Ohio & Erie Canal 
        nationally significant in a 1975 study entitled ``Suitability/
        Feasibility Study, Proposed Ohio & Erie Canal''.
            (6) A 1993 Special Resources Study of the Ohio & Erie Canal 
        Corridor conducted by the National Park Service entitled ``A 
        Route to Prosperity'' has concluded that the corridor is 
        eligible as a National Heritage Corridor.
            (7) Local governments, the State of Ohio, and private sector 
        interests have embraced the heritage corridor concept and desire 
        to enter into partnership with the Federal Government to 
        preserve, protect, and develop the corridor for public benefit.

    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this title are--
            (1) to preserve and interpret for the educational and 
        inspirational benefit of present and future generations the 
        unique and significant contributions to our national heritage of 
        certain historic and cultural lands, waterways, and structures 
        within the 87-mile Ohio & Erie Canal Corridor between Cleveland 
        and Zoar;
            (2) to encourage within the corridor a broad range of 
        economic opportunities enhancing the quality of life for present 
        and future generations;
            (3) to provide a management framework to assist the State of 
        Ohio, its political subdivisions, and nonprofit organizations, 
        or combinations thereof, in preparing and implementing an 
        integrated Corridor Management Plan and in developing policies 
        and programs that will preserve, enhance, and interpret the 
        cultural, historical, natural, recreation, and scenic resources 
        of the corridor; and
            (4) to authorize the Secretary to provide financial and 
        technical assistance to the State of Ohio, its political 
        subdivisions, and nonprofit organizations, or combinations 
        thereof, in preparing and implementing a Corridor Management 
        Plan.

        movements in American art and architecture through the work of 
        Andrew Jackson Downing, Alexander Jackson Davis, Thomas Cole, 
        and their associates, and played a central role in the 
        recognition of the esthetic value of the landscape and the 
        development of an American esthetic ideal.
            (4) The Hudson River Valley played an important role in the 
        development of the iron, textile, and collar and cuff industries 
        in the 19th century, exemplified in surviving structures such as 
        the Harmony Mills complex at Cohoes, and in the development of 
        early men's and women's labor and cooperative organizations, and
