                         Purpose of the Measure

    The purposes of H.R. 149, as ordered reported, are to make 
technical corrections to the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands 
Management Act of 1996 (P.L. 104-333); to provide additional

                          Background and Need

    Public Law 104-333, the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands 
Management Act of 1996, was enacted on November 12, 1996. The 
Act, as enacted, contained several erroneous map references, 
along with spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors H.R. 
149 makes a number of technical and conforming amendments to 
provisions regarding specific national historical parks, 
preserves, memorials, battlefields, visitor centers, recreation 
lakes and areas, heritage areas and historic reserves, 
districts and sites to correct the errors found in the original 
Act.
    In addition, H.R. 149 also makes technical and conforming 
amendments to a number of other Public Laws.

                          Legislative History

    H.R. 149 was introduced by Congressman Hansen on January 6, 
1999. The House of Representatives passed H.R. 149 on February 
23, 1999.
    The Subcommittee on National Parks, Historic Preservation 
and Recreation held a hearing on H.R. 149 on April 15, 1999.
    At its business meeting on June 30, 1999, the Committee on 
Energy and Natural Resources ordered H.R. 149 favorably 
reported, as amended.

            Committee Recommendation and Tabulation of Votes

    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, in open 
business session on June 30, 1999, by a unanimous voice vote of 
a quorum present, recommends that the Senate pass H.R. 149, if 
amended as described herein.

                          Committee Amendments

    During the consideration of H.R. 149, the Committee adopted 
a number of technical and clarifying amendments which are 
explained in detail in the section-by-section analysis, below.
    In addition to the technical and clarifying amendments, the 
Committee adopted amendments which expand the authorities of 
the Presidio Trust. The amendments: (1) authorize the Trust to 
expend funds for insurance and business related expenses 
appropriate to the business activities of the Trust; (2) make 
clear that the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act applies to 
the Presidio Trust and that the Trust has the same authority to 
pursue binding arbitration under that Act as any other 
executive agency as defined in sections 103 and 105 of title 5 
of the United States Code; (3) clarify that the term 
``proceeds'' as used in section 104(g) of Public Law 104-333 
includes all revenues of the Trust; (4) clarify that the scope 
of the Trust's rules and regulations include rules and 
regulations for the use and management of the property under 
the Trust's jurisdiction; (5) grant the Trust exclusive right 
to its name and insignia; (6) clarify that tenants, as well as 
occupants, may be eligible for loans under the Trust's loan 
guarantee program and also clarifies congressional intent to 
provide a cap on obligations (Treasury borrowing) of $50 
billion at any one time; and (7) deletes the annual cap on law 
enforcement funding to allow for more managerial flexibility 
for the Trust to determine adequate levels of law enforcement 
services.
    Finally, the Committee adopted an amendment to authorize 
certain units of the National Park System to retain and expend 
revenues from entrance and recreation use fees in the same 
manner as those units currently participating in the 
Recreational Fee Demonstration Program. Currently, 85% of 
entrance and recreation use fees authorized under the Land and 
Water Conservation Act are returned to the Treasury. This 
amendment will allow park units which are not participating in 
the Recreational Fee Demonstration Program to realize the same 
benefits as other park areas, without authorizing new or 
additional fees.

                   Cost and Budgetary Considerations

    The following estimate of costs of this measure has been 
provided by the Congressional Budget Office:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                      Washington, DC, July 7, 1999.
Hon. Frank H. Murkowski,
Chairman, Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, U.S. Senate, 
        Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 149, the Omnibus 
Parks Technical Corrections Act of 1999.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contacts are Deborah 
Reis and Victoria Heid Hall.
            Sincerely,
                                          Barry B. Anderson
                                    (For Dan L. Crippen, Director).
    Enclosure.

               congressional budget office cost estimate

H.R. 149--Omnibus Parks Technical Corrections Act of 1999

    H.R. 149 would make technical amendments to numerous 
provisions of the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands Management Act 
of 1996 (Omnibus Parks Act) and other statutes affecting public 
lands. Most of these amendments would correct spelling and 
punctuation errors or make other nonsubstantive changes in the 
original law. Two provisions of the act, however, would 
increase direct spending by an estimated $18 million over the 
next five years. As a result, pay-as-you-go procedures would 
apply.
    Section 304 of H.R. 149 would modify the Secretary of the 
Interior's authority to sell, purchase, or exchange certain 
federal land in six districts within Oregon managed by the 
Bureau of Land Management. For specified types of land affected 
in those districts, the act would require the Secretary to 
ensure that there is no net decrease in acreage over the next 
10 years or over subsequent 10-year periods. This provision 
could affect direct spending (including offsetting receipts) if 
it resulted in changes to timber harvests on federal land and 
the associated payments to the state and counties. CBO expects 
that any such effects would probably be insignificant over the 
next 10 years.
    Section 310 would authorize the Secretary to spend, without 
further appropriation action, all amounts earned from 
recreation fees at all units of the National Park System rather 
than just those units participating in the recreational fee 
demonstration program. Under current law, 85 percent of the 
receipts earned at nonparticipating sites must be appropriated 
before they can be spent. (The remaining 15 percent is used, 
without further appropriation, to cover collection costs.) CBO 
estimates that allowing the National Park Service to spend all 
such amounts earned through 2001 (when the demonstration 
program ends) would increase direct spending by $18 million 
over the 2000-2004 period.
    H.R. 149 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and 
would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
    The Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act sets 
up pay-as-you-go procedures for legislation affecting direct 
spending or receipts. The net changes on outlays that are 
subject to pay-as-you-go procedures are shown in the following 
table. For the purposes of enforcing pay-as-you-go procedures, 
only the effects in the current year, the budget year, and the 
succeeding four years are counted.

    On February 10, 1999, CBO prepared a cost estimate for H.R. 
149 as ordered reported by the House Committee on Resources on 
February 3, 1999. That version of the legislation did not 
contain the authority to spend recreation fees at all park 
units.
    The CBO staff contacts are Deborah Reis and Victoria Heid 
Hall. This estimate was approved by Robert A. Sunshine, Deputy 
Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.

                      Regulatory Impact Evaluation

    In compliance with paragraph 11(b) of rule XXVI of the 
Standing Rules of the Senate, the Committee makes the following 
evaluation of the regulatory impact which would be incurred in 
carrying out H.R. 149. The bill is not a regulatory measure in 
the sense of imposing Government-established standards of 
significant economic responsibilities on private individuals 
and businesses.
    No person information would be collected in administering 
the program. Therefore, there would be no impact on personal 
privacy.
    Little, if any, additional paperwork would result from 
enactment of H.R. 149, as ordered reported.

                        Executive Communications

    On May 25, 1999, the Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources requested legislative reports from the Department of 
the Interior and the Office of Management and Budget setting 
forth executive views on H.R. 149. These reports had not been 
received at the time the report on H.R. 149 was filed. When the 
reports become available, the Chairman will request that they 
be printed in the Congressional Record for the advice of the 
Senate. The testimony provided by the National Park Service at 
the Subcommittee hearing follows:

   Statement of Katherine H. Stevenson, Associate Director, Cultural 
                 Resources Stewardship and Partnership

    Mr. Chairman, and members of the committee; thank you for 
the opportunity to appear before you today to present the views 
of the Department of the Interior on H.R. 149, a bill to make 
technical corrections to the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands 
Management Act of 1996 and to other laws related to parks and 
public lands.
    The Department of Interior supports enactment of H.R. 149 
with the additional amendments included in this testimony.
    Public Law 104-333, the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands 
Management Act of 1996 (Omnibus Parks Act) was an important 
achievement of the 104th Congress. This law is composed of 116 
individual titles, including 76 that affect national parks. 
During the final two weeks of the second session, Congress 
worked hard to craft a bill that could be supported by most 
members as well as the Administration. Because of the 
complexity of this task and the need to finish before Congress 
adjourned, a number of minor errors occurred involving cross-
references, titled, citations, spelling and grammar.
    While many of these errors could easily be dismissed as 
inconsequential, it would assist park employees and those 
involved with interpreting Congressional intent to correct 
these mistakes to help avoid any misunderstandings in the 
future. Some of these changes involve deleting references to 
parts of bills that were dropped from the final agreement that 
became law. Others would standardize references made throughout 
various parts of a title to assure the correct intent is 
achieved.
    In the last Congress, the Administration transmitted the 
original version of this legislation to Congress and it was 
introduced as S. 991. While the bill was reported from the 
Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, it was not 
before the 105th Congress adjourned. In the 106th Congress, 
H.R. 149 was introduced to correct the errors from the Omnibus 
Parks Act and to address some additional technical changes from 
other public laws. This bill passed the House on February 23, 
1999.
    There is one substantive section whose timely enactment is 
important to the National Park Service. Section 102 of H.R. 149 
would provide a new map reference for the boundary adjustment 
at Colonial National Historical Park, which was authorized by 
Section 211 of division I of the Omnibus Parks Act. The map 
referenced in the Omnibus Parks Act was incorrect as it 
included only part of Lot 49 in the Page Landing Addition 
authorized for the park. The excluded portion of the lot would 
be covered with the new map reference. This change is needed as 
completion of the purchase of this property has now been 
delayed two years pending correction of the map reference.
    Since the time of House passage of H.R. 149, the need for 
two other technical changes has been brought to our attention. 
The first technical change is proposed to provide the National 
Park Service and other federal agencies with reciprocal 
authority to carry out the purposes of Title I of the Omnibus 
Parks Act concerning the Presidio of San Francisco. In 
particular, the Presidio Trust (Trust), the Park Service, and 
the Army have been negotiating an environmental cleanup 
agreement at the Presidio that would shift certain 
responsibilities and liabilities to the Trust. Our proposed 
technical amendment is necessary to give legal certainty to 
this agreement and to others that may be necessary to carry out 
the purposes of this title of the act.
    The second technical change concerns a misspelling in the 
Boston Harbor Islands section of the Omnibus Parks Act. We 
recommend that H.R. 149 be amended to address these two 
changes. We have included the language of our proposed 
amendments at the end of this testimony.
    We also have a concern about the National Park Passport, 
authorized in Title VI of Public Law 105-391, the National 
Parks Omnibus Management Act of 1998. In Title VI an annual 
administrative cap of ten percent (10%) was established for the 
National Park Passport Program. To our knowledge no analysis 
was undertaken to determine the feasibility of a 10% 
administrative cap for the program. At the time this program 
was being reviewed in Congress, the National Park Service, 
through the National Park Foundation and a private marketing 
research firm, was analyzing the proposed program and the 
estimated costs to institute and to administer such a program. 
We testified before Congress that we were involved in this 
research and that findings from the research would be useful in 
formulating the National Park Passport Program.
    Our research showed that there may be a need to adjust the 
cap for administrative costs. We are currently reviewing this 
with the Office of Management and Budget and will get back to 
the committee shortly.
    I appreciate the opportunity to appear before you and I 
would be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
                              ----------

    (b) Transfer.--(1) Within 60 days after receipt of a 
request from the Trust for the transfer of any parcel within 
the area depicted as Area B on the map entitled ``Presidio 
Trust Number 1'', dated December 7, 1995, the Secretary shall 
transfer such parcel to the administrative jurisdiction of the 
Trust. Within 1 year after the first meeting of the Board of 
Directors of the Trust, the Secretary shall transfer to the 
Trust administrative jurisdiction over all remaining parcels 
within Area B. Such map shall be on file and available for 
public inspection in the offices of the Trust and in the 
offices of the National Park Service, Department of the 
Interior. The Trust and the Secretary may jointly make 
technical and clerical revisions in the boundary depicted on 
such map. The Secretary shall retain jurisdiction over those 
portions of the building identified as number 102 as the 
Secretary deems essential for use as a visitor center. The 
Building shall be named the ``William Penn Mott Visitor 
Center''. Any parcel of land, the jurisdiction over which is 
transferred pursuant to this subsection, shall remain within 
the boundary of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. With 
the consent of the Secretary, the Trust may at any time 
transfer to the administrative jurisdiction of the Secretary 
any other properties within the Presidio which are surplus to 
the needs of the Trust and which serve essential purposes of 
the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The Trust is 
encouraged to transfer to the administrative jurisdiction of 
the Secretary open space areas which have high public use 
potential and are contiguous to other lands [administrated] 
administered by the Secretary.

SEC. 104 DUTIES AND AUTHORITIES OF THE TRUST.

    (a) * * *
    (b) Authorities.--The Trust may participate in the 
development of programs and activities at the properties 
transferred to the Trust, except that the Trust shall have the 
authority to negotiate and enter into such agreements, leases, 
contracts and other arrangements with any person, firm, 
association, organization, corporation or governmental entity, 
including, without limitation, entities of Federal, State and 
local governments as are necessary and appropriate to carry out 
its authorized activities. The National Park Service or any 
other Federal agency is authorized to enter into agreements, 
leases, contracts and other arrangements with the Presidio 
Trust which are necessary and appropriate to carry out the 
purposes of this title. Any such agreement may be entered into 
without regard to section 321 of the Act of June 30, 1932 (40 
U.S.C. 303b). The Trust may use alternatives means of dispute 
resolution authorized under Subchapter IV of chapter 5 of title 
5, United States Code (5 U.S.C. 571 et seq.). The Trust shall 
establish procedures for lease agreements and other agreements 
for use and occupancy of Presidio facilities, including a 
requirement that in entering into such agreements the Trust 
shall obtain reasonable competition. The Trust may not dispose 
of or convey fee title to any real property transferred to it 
under this title. Federal laws and regulations governing 
procurement by Federal agencies shall not apply to the Trust, 
with the exception of laws and regulations related to Federal 
government contracts government working conditions and wage 
rates, including the provisions of sections 276a-276a-6 of 
title 40, United States Code (Davis-Bacon Act), and any civil 
rights provisions otherwise applicable thereto. The Trust, in 
consultation with the Administrator of Federal Procurement 
Policy, shall establish and promulgate procedures applicable to 
the Trust's procurement ofgoods and service including, but not

business related meal expenditures.
    (c) * * *
    (d) Financial Authorities.--To augment or encourage the use 
of non-Federal funds to finance capital improvements on 
Presidio properties transferred to its jurisdiction, the Trust, 
in addition to its other authorities, shall have the following 
authorities, subject to the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 
(2 U.S.C. 661 et seq.):
          (1) The authority to guarantee any lender against 
        loss or principle or interest on any loan: Provided,

                by the Secretary of the Treasury;
                  (B) adequate subsidy budget authority is 
                provided in advance in appropriation Acts; and
                  (C) such guarantees are structured so as to 
                minimize potential cost to the Federal 
                Government. No loan guarantee under this title 
                shall cover more than 75 percent of the unpaid 
                balance of the loan. The Trust may collect a 
                fee sufficient to cover this title. The 
                authority to enter into any such loan guarantee 
                agreement shall expire at the end of 15 years 
                after the date of enactment of this title.
          (2) The authority, subject to appropriations, to make 
        loans to the occupants of property managed by the Trust 
        for the preservation, restoration, maintenance, or

        Secretary of the Treasury agrees to purchase such 
        obligations [after determining that the projects to be 
        funded from the proceeds thereof are credit worthy and 
        that a repayment schedule is established and only] to 
        the extent authorized in advance of appropriation acts. 
        The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to use as a 
        public debt transaction the proceeds from the sale of 
        any securities issued under chapter 31 of title 31, 
        United States Code, and for the purposes for which 
        securities may be issued under such chapter are 
        extended to include any new purchases of such notes or 
        obligations acquired by the Secretary of the Treasury 
        under this subsection. Obligations issued under this 
        subparagraph shall be in such forms and denominations, 
        bearing such maturities, and subject to such terms and 
        conditions including a review of the creditworthiness 
        of the loan and establishment of a repayment schedule.

administration, preservation, restoration, operation and 
maintenance, improvement, repair and related expenses incurred 
with respect to Presidio properties under its administrative 
jurisdiction. The Secretary of the Treasury shall invest excess 
moneys of the Trust in public debt securities which shall bear 
interest at rates determined by the Secretary of the Treasury 
taking into consideration the current average market yield on 
outstanding marketable obligations of the United States of 
comparable maturity.] Financial Management.--Notwithstanding 
section 1341 of title 31 of the United States Code, all 
proceeds and other revenues received by the Trust shall be 
retained by the Trust. Those proceeds shall be available, 
without further appropriation, to the Trust for the 
administration, preservation, restoration, operation and 
maintenance, improvement, repair and related expenses incurred 
with respect to Presidio properties under its administrative 
jurisdiction. The Secretary of the Treasury shall invest, at 
the direction of the Trust, such excess moneys that the Trust 
determines are not required to meet current withdrawals. Such 
investment shall be in public debt securities with maturities 
suitable to the needs of the Trust and bearing interest at 
rates determined by the Secretary of the Treasury taking into 
consideration the current average yield on outstanding 
marketable obligations of the United States of comparable 
maturity.

general objectives of the General Management Plan for the 
Presidio and to the reduction of cost to the Federal 
Government. The Trust shall give priority to the following 
categories of tenants: Tenants that enhance the financial 
viability of the Presidio and tenants that facilitate the cost-
effective preservation of historic buildings through their 
reuse of such buildings.

rental charge receipt levels to the United States during 
transition from the graduated rate rental charge system formula 
to the formula of this [Act] section, the rental charge paid by 
any individual permittee shall be--
          (1) for the 1995-1996 permit year, either the rental 
        charge paid for the preceding adjusted gross revenue 
        for the 1994-1995 base year or the rental charge 
        calculated pursuant to this [Act] section, whichever is 
        higher;
          (2) for the 1996-1997 permit year, either the rental 
        charge paid for the adjusted gross revenue for the 
        1994-1995 base year or the rental charge calculated 
        pursuant to this [Act] section, whichever is higher; 
        and
          (3) for the 1997-1998 permit year, either the rental 
        charge for the adjusted gross revenue for the 1994-1995 
        base year or the rental charge calculated pursuant to 
        this [Act] section, 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 adjusted gross revenue for the 1994-1995 
base year, the rental charge paid shall be the rental charge 
calculated pursuant to this [Act] section.

           *       *       *       *       *       *       *

    (f) To reduce administrative costs of ski area permittees

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 offered for commercial or other promotional purposes) 
for which the permittee does not receive money.

           *       *       *       *       *       *       *

    (i) To reduce Federal costs in administering the provisions 
of this [Act] section, 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.).

authorized, under such terms and conditions as he may deem 
advisable, to carry out the following activities:
    (a) [provide] Provide transportation of employees located 
at isolated areas of the national park system and to members of 
their families, where (1) such areas not adequately served by 
commercial transportation, and (2) such transportation is 
incidental to official transportation services[;].
    (b) [provide] Provide recreation facilities, equipment, and 
services for use by employees and their families located at 
isolated areas of the national park system[;].
    (c) [appoint] Appoint and establish such advisory 
committees in regard to the functions of the National Park 
Service as he may deem advisable, members of which shall 
receive no compensation for their services as such but who 
shall be allowed necessary travel expenses as authorized by 
section 5 of the Administrative Expenses Act of 1946 (5 U.S.C. 
5703)[;].
    (d) [purchase] Purchase field and special purpose equipment 
required by employees for the performance of assigned functions 
which shall be regarded and listed as park equipment[;].
    (e) [enter] Enter into contracts which provide for the sale 
or lease to persons, States, or their political subdivisions, 
of services, resources, or water available within an area of 
the national park system, as long as such activity does not 
jeopardize or unduly interfere with the primary natural or 
historic resource of the area involved, if such person, State, 
or its political subdivision--
          (1) provides public accommodations or services within 
        the immediate vicinity of an area of the national park 
        system to persons visiting the area; and
          (2) has demonstrated to the Secretary that there are

        perform the necessary services, resources, or water[;].
    (f) [acquire,] Acquire, and have installed, air-
conditioning units for any Government-owned passenger motor

dutiesnecessitate long periods in automobiles or in regions of 
the United States where high temperatures and humidity are common and 
prolonged[;].
    (g) [sell] Sell at fair market value without regard to the 
requirements of the Federal Property and Administrative 
Services Act of 1949, as amended, products and services 
produced in the conduct of living exhibits and interpretive 
demonstrations in areas of the national park system, to enter 
into contracts including cooperative arrangements with respect 
to such living exhibits and interpretive demonstrations, and to 
credit the proceeds therefrom to the appropriation bearing the 
cost of such exhibits and [demonstrations;] demonstrations. 
Sixty percent of the fees paid by permittees for the privilege 
of entering into Glacier Bay for the period beginning on the 
first full fiscal year following the date of enactment of this 
sentence shall be deposited into a special account and that 
such funds shall be 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 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.
    (h) [promulgate] Promulgate and enforce regulations 
concerning boating and other activities on or relating to 
waters located within areas of the National Park System, 
includingwaters subject to the jurisdiction of the United 
States: Provided, That any regulations adopted pursuant to this 
subsection shall be complementary to, and not in derogation of, the 
authority of the United States Coast Guard to regulate the use of 
waters subject to the jurisdiction of the United States[;].
    (i) [provide] Provide meals and lodging, as the Secretary 
deems appropriate, for members of the United States Park Police

authorized to use funds appropriated for the expenses of the 
Department of the Interior[; and].
    (j) Enter into cooperative agreements with public or 
private educational institutions, States, and their political 
subdivisions, for the purpose of developing adequate, 
coordinated, cooperative research and training programs 
concerning the resources of the National Park System, and, 
pursuant to any such agreements, to accept from and make 
available to the cooperator such technical and support staff, 
financial assistance for mutually agreed upon research 
projects, supplies and equipment, facilities, and 
administrative services relating to cooperative research units 
as the Secretary deems appropriate; except that this paragraph 
shall not waive any requirements for research projects that are 
subject to the Federal procurement regulations.
