 Mr. Shuster, from the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, 
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                        [To accompany H.R. 2415]

    The Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, to whom 
was referred the bill (H.R. 2415) to designate the United 
States Customs Administrative Building at the Ysleta/Zaragosa 
Port of Entry located at 797 South Ysleta in El Paso, Texas, as 
the ``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs Administrative Building'', 
having considered the same, report favorably thereon with 
amendments and recommend that the bill as amended do pass.
    The amendments are as follows:
    Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert in lieu 
thereof the following:

SECTION 1. DESIGNATION.

    The United States Customs Administrative Building at the Ysleta/
Zaragosa Port of Entry located at 797 South Zaragosa Road in El Paso, 
Texas, shall be known and designated as the ``Timothy C. McCaghren 
Customs Administrative Building''.

SEC. 3. REFERENCES.

    Any references in a law, map, regulation, document, paper, or other 
record of the United States to the building referred to in section 1 
shall be deemed to be a reference to the ``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs 
Administrative Building''.

    Amend the title so as to read:

    A bill to designate the United States Customs 
Administrative Building at the Ysleta/Zaragosa Port of Entry 
located at 797 South Zaragosa Road in El Paso, Texas, as the 
``Timothy C. McCaghren Customs Administrative Building''.

    Customs Inspector Timothy C. McCaghren was one of the top 
narcotics interdiction officers at the Ysleta Port of Entry, in 
El Paso, Texas. On February 19, 1990, Officer McCaghren 
attempted to stop a van at the port. The driver of the van 
accelerated and ran the port, dragging Officer McCaghren until 
he was flung from the vehicle. Officer McCaghren died the 
following day from head injuries sustained in the incident.
    A devoted father and husband, with every seizure he made, 
Officer McCaghren was known to comment ``That's one load that 
won't reach my kids.''
    Customs inspectors are often the first line of defense 
against terrorists and illegal drug smuggling operations. Many 
inspectors carry firearms and face a constant threat of bodily 
injury and death. H.R. 2415 is a fitting tribute and memorial 
for both Officer McCaghren and the other fine officers who 
daily face the perils involved with customs operations.

                        compliance with rule xi

    With respect to the requirements of clause 2(l)(3) of rule 
XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives:
          (1) The Committee held hearings on this legislation 
        on December 13, 1995.
          (2) The requirements of section 308(a)(1) of the 
        Congressional Budget Act of 1974 are not applicable to 
        this legislation since it does not provide new budget 
        authority or new or increased tax expenditures.
          (3) The Committee has received no report from the 
        Committee on Government Reform and Oversight of 
        oversight findings and recommendations arrived at under 
        clause 4(C)(2) of rule X of the Rules of the House of 
        Representatives.

                     inflationary impact statement

    Under (2)(l)(4) of rule XI of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives, the Committee on Transportation and 
Infrastructure estimates that enactment of H.R. 2415 will have 
no significant inflationary impact on prices and costs in the 
operation of the national economy.

                          cost of legislation

    Clause 7(a) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires a statement of the estimated cost to 
the United States which will be incurred in carrying out H.R. 
2415, as reported, in fiscal year 1996, and each of the 
following five years. Implementation of this legislation is not 
expected to result in any increased costs to the United States.

                       committee action and vote

    In compliance with clause (2)(l)(2) (A) and (B) of rule XI 
of the Rules of the House of Representatives, at a meeting of
