SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds as follows:
            (1) Many areas of undeveloped National Forest System lands 
        in the States of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and 
        Wyoming possess outstanding natural characteristics which give 
        them high values as wilderness, parks, and wild and scenic 
        rivers and will, if properly preserved, be an enduring resource 
        of wilderness, wild land areas, and biodiversity for the 
        benefit of the American people.
            (2) The Northern Rockies Bioregion contains the most 
        diverse array of wild lands remaining south of Canada, 
        providing sanctuary for a host of species listed as threatened 
        or endangered under section 4(c) of the Endangered Species Act 
        of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533(c)). These national interest public 
        lands are among the most popular wild lands in the Nation, 
        embracing greater ecosystems and national treasures such as the 
        Greater Yellowstone, Greater Glacier/Northern Continental 
        Divide, Greater Hells Canyon/Wallowa, Greater Salmon/Selway, 
        and Greater Cabinet/Yaak/Selkirk ecosystems. The headwaters for 
        nearly two-thirds of the rivers of North America originate in 
the Northern Rockies, sending waters to three oceans and providing 
critical supplies of clean water for wildlife and other users.
            (3) The wildlife treasures of the Northern Rockies are of 
        international significance and contain remarkably intact large 
        mammalian fauna and rare and unique plant life.
            (4) Wildlife habitat fragmentation due to roadbuilding, 
        timber harvest, mining, oil and gas exploration, lack of 
        interagency cooperation, and other activities has severe 
        effects on the wildlife populations (including those listed as 
        threatened or endangered under section 4(c) of the Endangered 
        Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533(c))) and their habitat, the 
        water quality, the ancient forests, and the greater ecosystems 
        of the Northern Rockies Bioregion. Continued fragmentation and 
        development of the remaining roadless and essentially roadless 
        ecosystems and biological connectors of the Northern Rockies 
        would cause a loss to the Nation of an entire wild land region 
        and of the only remaining areas south of Canada still pristine 
        enough to support populations of caribou, gray wolves, grizzly 
        bears, anadromous fish, and numerous other rare and endangered 
        plant and animal life all in one intact bioregion.
            (5) Since the 1936 roadless area inventory completed by Bob 
        Marshall, millions of acres of roadless wild lands have been 
        developed in the Northern Rockies. Extensive fragmentation of 
        wild lands and wildlife habitat has resulted in the listing of 
        several species as threatened or endangered and reduced the 
        numbers and range of many others, including anadromous fish.
            (6) A review of the current situation in the Northern 
        Rockies has revealed the urgent need for an ecological reserve 
        system for the Northern Rockies Bioregion, which includes core 
        ecosystem reserve areas and biological connecting corridors 
        necessary to ensure wildlife movements and genetic interchange 
        between the core reserve areas.
            (7) The economic value to the Nation of most of these 
        undeveloped areas, left in their natural state, greatly exceeds 
        any potential return to the Treasury of the United States from 
        timber harvest and development. If current Federal land 
        management in the Northern Rockies continues to result in the 
        development of roadless areas, the American public will be 
        using its tax dollars to fund permanent reductions in 
        wilderness, water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and 
        species and biological diversity.
            (8) The congressional review of roadless areas within 
        National Forest System lands in the States of Idaho, Montana, 
        Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming has identified areas which, on 
        the basis of their land form, ecosystem, associated fish and 
        wildlife, economic value, and location will help to fulfill the 
        role of the United States Forest Service to ensure a quality 
        National Wilderness Preservation System. The review has 
        identified other areas which may have outstanding values as 
        national parks and preserves and wild and scenic rivers. The 
        review has also identified areas which may not possess 
        outstanding wilderness attributes and should not now be 
        designated as components of the National Wilderness 
        Preservation System, but which should be studied to determine 
        their role in maintaining biological diversity in the Northern 
        Rockies.
            (9) Many areas of National Forest System lands have been 
        damaged and their productivity reduced by unwise development 
        practices which have also impaired ecosystem function and 
        biological diversity. The Island Park area adjacent to 
        Yellowstone National Park contains large clear-cut areas right 
        up to the park boundary. Efforts should be made to return these 
        areas to their former ecological health and native diversity by 
        designating them as National Wildland Restoration and Recovery 
        areas. These efforts should seek to ensure that vital ecosystem 
        components are restored, especially in areas where wildlife 
        travel corridors and native fish and wildlife populations have 
        been damaged or eliminated. Restoration efforts should seek to 
        ensure and maintain genetic interchange, biological diversity, 
        and restoration of native species diversity throughout the 
        Northern Rockies Bioregion.
            (10) Federal agencies entrusted with managing the natural 
        resources of the Northern Rockies Bioregion operate under 
        contradictory congressional mandates, and thus are in 
        dissension over management policies which involve common 
        resources and greater ecosystems. Existing agency structures 
        and regulatory mechanisms have proven unsatisfactory for 
        responsible management of nationally important ecosystems on 
        public lands. Existing laws and regulations have not been 
        sufficient to establish and maintain agency accountability for 
        public resources.
            (11) This Act does not affect lands that are in private 
        ownership.

SEC. 3. PURPOSES.

    (a) Designations.--The purposes of this Act are--
            (1) to designate certain National Forest System lands and 
        Federal lands under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land

            (6) preserve scenic, historic, and cultural resources;
            (7) promote scientific research, primitive recreation, 
        solitude, physical and mental challenge, and inspiration for 
        the benefit of all of the American people;
            (8) avoid the misinvestment of scarce capital in lands of 
        marginal timber value; and
            (9) promote ecologically and economically sustainable 
        management in the Northern Rockies Bioregion.

SEC. 4. DEFINITIONS.

    For purposes of this Act:
            (1) Development.--The term ``development'' means activities 
        that eliminate the roadless and wilderness characteristics of 
        the land and includes ski resort facilities and such activities 
        as roadbuilding, timber harvest, mining, and oil and gas 
        drilling.
            (2) Entry.--The term ``entry'' means to enter a roadless 
        area for purposes of development and associated activities, 
        such as roadbuilding, timber harvest, mining, or other such 
        activities which eliminate the roadless character of the land.
            (3) Greater ecosystem.--The term ``greater ecosystem'', 
        when used in conjunction with the specific ecosystems protected 
        under this Act, means the ecological land units of sufficient 
        scale to support and maintain populations of large vertebrate 
        species and the other native plant and animal species of the 
        area. These units are comprised of lands which are similar in 
        regards to topography, climate, and plant and animal species. 
        The ecosystems in the Northern Rockies are also defined in 
        terms of the habitat of wildlife indicator species listed as 
        threatened or endangered under section 4(c) of the Endangered 
        Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533(c)), including grizzly 
        bear, gray wolf, bald eagle, and caribou, and have been 
        depicted on maps published by Federal agencies.
            (4) Northern rockies bioregion.--The term ``Northern 
        Rockies Bioregion'' means the portion of the Northern Rocky 
        Mountains in the States of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, and

            (5) Recovery.--The term ``recovery'' means the restoration 
        of lands damaged by land management activities to a condition 
        as close as possible to the condition of the lands as existed 
        prior to entry and development of the lands.
            (6) Recovery system.--The term ``Recovery System'' means 
        the National Wildland Restoration and Recovery System 
        established in title V.

                TITLE I--DESIGNATION OF WILDERNESS AREAS

SEC. 101. DESIGNATION OF CERTAIN NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM LANDS AND OTHER 
              PUBLIC LANDS AS WILDERNESS.

    In furtherance of the purposes of the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 
1131 et seq.), the National Forest System lands and other public lands 
described in this title in the States of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, 
Washington, and Wyoming are hereby designated as wilderness and, 
therefore, as components of the National Wilderness Preservation 
System.

SEC. 102. GREATER GLACIER/NORTHERN CONTINENTAL DIVIDE ECOSYSTEM.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The core of the Greater Glacier/Northern Continental 
        Divide ecosystem region is Glacier National Park and the Bob 
        Marshall Wilderness, which was the first wilderness area in the 
        United States.
            (2) This ecosystem includes unique lands, such as the Rocky 
        Mountain Front, where grizzlies still roam the prairies and 
        America's largest herd of bighorn sheep scales the craggy 
        peaks.
            (3) The Swan and Mission mountain ranges contain some of 
        Montana's largest old growth forests and pristine bull trout 
and westslope cutthroat trout spawning runs.
            (4) The Rocky Mountain Gray Wolf is making a comeback in 
        this ecosystem, and the ecosystem is home to the largest 
        grizzly population in the lower 48 States.
    (b) Designation.--In order to protect the unique Greater Glacier/
Northern Continental Divide ecosystem, the areas specified in the table 
in subsection (c), which together comprise approximately 1,102,535 
acres as generally depicted on the maps with titles corresponding to 
each area and dated January 2003, are hereby designated as wilderness. 
Each wilderness area shall either be incorporated into the wilderness 
area indicated or shall be known by the name given it in the table. 
Each map shall be on file and available for public inspection in the 
Office of the Chief of the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture.
    (c) Table of Areas.--The table referred to in subsection (b) is as

SEC. 103. GREATER YELLOWSTONE ECOSYSTEM.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The core of the greater Yellowstone region is 
        Yellowstone National Park, the Nation's first national park.
            (2) This world-famous region of geyser basins, towering 
        mountains, abundant wildlife, and vast forests contains the 
        headwaters for many of the Nation's most famous blue-ribbon 
        trout streams.
            (3) Small glaciers and permanent snowfields cloak the 
        rugged Teton and Beartooth mountains, which contain several 
        peaks greater than 12,000 feet.
            (4) Diverse habitat in the region ranges from cactus desert 
        lowlands to arctic tundra.
            (5) Wildlife in the region includes the threatened grizzly 
        bear, the Nation's last wild bison herd, trumpeter swans, and 
        nearly 35,000 elk.
    (b) Designation.--In order to protect the unique ecosystem of the 
greater Yellowstone region, the areas specified in the table in 
subsection (c), which comprise approximately 4,233,135 acres as 
generally depicted on the maps with titles corresponding to each area 
and dated January 2003, are hereby designated as wilderness. Each 
wilderness area shall either be incorporated into the wilderness area 
indicated or shall be known by the name given it in the table. Each map 
shall be on file and available for public inspection in the Office of 
the Chief of the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture.

SEC. 104. GREATER SALMON/SELWAY ECOSYSTEM.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Greater Salmon/Selway region is one of the most 
        rugged and wild areas in America, and one of the largest intact 
        forest ecosystems in the temperate zones of the Earth.
            (2) The core of the region is comprised of the Frank 
        Church-River of No Return and Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness 
        areas.
            (3) Swimming the Salmon and Clearwater river systems, 
        several species of salmon and sea-going trout still make the 
        900 mile spawning journey from the Pacific Ocean to small 
        tributaries in the high mountain country.
            (4) Biological and landscape diversity in the region is 
        great, ranging from rocky, dry canyon country to wet forests of 
        ancient cedars many feet in diameter in the Mallard-Larkins and 
        other areas.
            (5) A wide array of forest dwelling species reside in the 
        region, and the gray wolf is making a comeback.
    (b) Designation.--In order to protect the unique ecosystem of the 
Greater Salmon/Selway region, the areas specified in the table in 
subsection (c), which comprise approximately 6,278,611 acres as 
generally depicted on the maps with titles corresponding to each area 
and dated January 2003, are hereby designated as wilderness. Each

SEC. 105. GREATER CABINET/YAAK/SELKIRK ECOSYSTEM.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The wettest part of the Northern Rockies, the Greater 
        Cabinet/Yaak/Selkirk ecosystem is a wild land region that 
        contains the last major stands of low elevation ancient forests 
        in the general region, including the Long Canyon area which 
        contains the oldest living cedars in the Nation.
            (2) The only caribou herd in the lower 48 States roams 
        these mountains, as do the grizzly and the gray wolf.
            (3) Towering mountains in the ecosystem include the 
        Cabinet, Selkirk, and Purcell ranges.
    (b) Designation.--In order to protect the unique, heavily 
fragmented, and endangered Greater Cabinet/Yaak/Selkirk ecosystem, the 
areas specified in the table in subsection (c), which comprise 
approximately 1,190,644 acres as generally depicted on the maps with 
titles corresponding to each area and dated January 2003, are hereby 
designated as wilderness. Each wilderness area shall either be 
incorporated into the wilderness area indicated or shall be known by 
the name given it in the table. Each map shall be on file and available 
for public inspection in the Office of the Chief of the Forest Service, 
Department of Agriculture.
    (c) Table of Areas.--The table referred to in subsection (b) is as

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) There are several island mountain ranges in the 
        Northern Rockies Bioregion, separated from other mountains by 
        the intervening prairies.
            (2) These wild and beautiful mountains are home to an 
        abundant array of native wildlife and birds and are 
representative of a unique ecological complex.
            (3) These lands include the Bighorn, Big Snowy, Pryor, 
        Elkhorn, and Caribou Mountain Ranges.
    (b) Designation.--In order to protect the unique and increasingly 
isolated ecological treasure of island mountain ranges in the Northern 
Rockies Bioregion, the areas specified in the table in subsection (c), 
which comprise approximately 2,665,315 acres as generally depicted on 
the maps with titles corresponding to each area and dated January 2003, 
are hereby designated as wilderness.
    (c) Treatment.--Each wilderness area shall either be incorporated 
into the wilderness area indicated or shall be known by the name given 
it in the table. Each map shall be on file and available for public 
inspection in the Office of the Chief of the Forest Service, Department 
of Agriculture.

included in this Act, except that correction of clerical and 
typographical errors in the map and legal description may be made. Each 
map and legal description shall be on file and available for public 
inspection in the Office of the Chief of the Forest Service, Department 
of Agriculture.

SEC. 108. BLACKFEET WILDERNESS.

    (a) Designation.--In furtherance of the purposes of the Wilderness 
Act, the preservation of Blackfeet religious lands, and Blackfeet 
treaty rights, certain lands within the Lewis and Clark National Forest 
comprising approximately 128,622 acres known as the Badger-Two Medicine 
Area, as depicted on the map dated January 2003, and entitled 
``Blackfeet Wilderness'', are hereby designated as the Blackfeet 
Wilderness Area.
    (b) Treaty Rights.--The Congress recognizes that the Blackfeet 
Nation retains treaty rights in the lands described in subsection (a), 
provided for in the 1896 treaty with the United States Government.
    (c) Review.--The Secretary of Agriculture shall conduct a review of 
the wilderness area established under this section in accordance with 
the Wilderness Act. The Secretary shall report the results of the 
review to the Congress not later than 3 years after the date of 
enactment of this Act.
    (d) Review Committee.--
            (1) Appointment.--The Secretary of Agriculture shall 
        establish a committee composed of the following:
                    (A) Representatives of the Blackfeet Tribal 
                Business Council.
                    (B) Blackfeet Tribal Traditionalists selected in a 
                manner consistent with the historic Cultural Law of the 
                Tribe, independently of the Business Council. The 
                Secretary shall give careful consideration to the 
                Blackfeet Language community and its views.
                    (C) The National Park Service.
                    (D) The State of Montana.
                    (E) Representatives of the public who use the area 
                designated as wilderness by this section, including 
                environmental groups previously appropriately involved 
                in the area.
            (2) Advisory role.--The committee shall regularly advise 
        the Secretary of Agriculture during the preparation of the 
        review required by subsection (c) and shall submit its findings 
        to the Congress concurrently with the submission of the review 
        by the Secretary.
            (3) Management plan.--The Secretary of Agriculture shall 
        instruct the committee to develop a wilderness management plan 
        for the area which ensures that Blackfeet religious and treaty 
        rights to the area are recognized and honored.
    (e) Considerations.--In carrying out their duties under subsections 
(c) and (d), the Secretary of Agriculture and the committee shall give 
special consideration to the religious, wilderness, and wildlife uses 
of the area, taking into account any treaties the United States has 
entered into with the Blackfeet Nation.
    (f) Withdrawal.--The Blackfeet Wilderness Area is hereby withdrawn 
from all forms of entry, appropriation, the disposal under the mining 
laws, and from disposition under the geothermal and mineral leasing 
laws.

SEC. 109. WATER.

    (a) Reservation.--With respect to each wilderness area designated 
by this title, the Congress hereby reserves a quantity of water 
sufficient to fulfill the purposes for which such area is designated. 
The priority date of such reserved rights shall be the date of 
enactment of this Act.
    (b) Implementation.--The Secretary of Agriculture and all other 
officers of the United States shall take all steps necessary to protect 
the rights reserved by subsection (a), including the filing of claims 
for quantification of such rights in any present or future appropriate 
stream adjudication, in a court of the State of Idaho, Montana, 
Wyoming, Oregon, or Washington, in which the United States has been or 
is properly joined in accordance with section 208 of the Act of July 
10, 1952 (66 Stat. 560; 43 U.S.C. 666; commonly referred to as the 
``McCarran Amendment'').

               TITLE II--BIOLOGICAL CONNECTING CORRIDORS

SEC. 201. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The most recent scientific information on ecological 
        reserve design and function points out the critical need for 
        biological connecting corridors between the larger core 
        ecosystem areas.
            (2) While none of the remaining major wild land ecosystems 
        of the Northern Rockies Bioregion appears to be of sufficient 
        size to perpetuate the full complement of self-sustaining 
        viable populations of native wildlife, biological diversity, 
        and full range of ecological processes on its own, it appears 
        that an effective reserve system can be achieved if biological 
        connecting corridors between the ecosystems are identified and 
        protected.
            (3) The wild land areas described in this section are 
        located between the major core ecosystems of the region and are 
        essential for wildlife and plant migration and genetic 
        interchange.
            (4) These areas are some of the most beautiful and wild 
        mountain ranges in the Nation, including the Bitterroot, 
        Sapphire, Lost River, Lemhi, and Bridger mountain ranges.

SEC. 202. DESIGNATION OF BIOLOGICAL CONNECTING CORRIDORS.

    (a) Designation.--To protect the life flow of the Northern Rockies 
Bioregion, the areas specified in the table in subsection (b) as 
biological connecting corridors, which comprise approximately 8,449,403 
acres as generally depicted on the maps with titles corresponding to 
each area and dated January 2003, are hereby designated as biological 
connecting corridors. The biological connecting corridors shall be of 
two types, areas to be designated as components of the National 
Wilderness Preservation System and areas to be subject to special 
corridor management requirements under section 203. Each biological 
connecting corridor shall be known by the name given it in the table. 
Each map shall be on file and available for public inspection in the 
Office of the Chief of the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture.
    (b) Table of Areas.--The table referred to in subsection (a) is as 
follows:

       TITLE III--NATIONAL PARKS, PRESERVES, AND RELATED STUDIES

SEC. 301. HELLS CANYON/CHIEF JOSEPH NATIONAL PRESERVE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The ecological diversity of the Hells Canyon/Wallowa 
        Mountain Region is unique and its central proximity to other 
        ecologically intact or relatively intact areas makes it a 
        critical passageway for genetic interchange of native plants 
        and animals throughout the northwestern United States.
            (2) The deepest river-carved canyon in the world at over 
        8,000 feet deep, Hells Canyon of the Snake River forms the 
        centerpiece of the rugged Greater Hells Canyon/Wallowa Mountain 
        Region.
            (3) The ancestral home of the Nez Perce Indians and their 
        famous leaders, Old Chief Joseph, Young Chief Joseph, and 
        Ollokot, the region is historically significant and remains 
        spiritually and culturally important to existing tribes, whose 
        treaty rights guarantee their sovereignty and continued use of 
        the land.
            (4) The region abounds in cultural and archaeological 
        sites, the remnants of the Nez Perce Tribe and other aboriginal 
        cultures.
            (5) Breathtaking scenery in the region includes the 
        snowcapped peaks of the Wallowa and Seven Devils Mountains; 
        ancient boreal forests composed of many tree species; semi-arid 
        desert environments; rare, intact remnants of native Columbia 
        Basin grasslands; unique geology and numerous dramatic rimrock 
        canyons.
            (6) Endangered chinook salmon, rare and/or threatened 
        species such as goshawk, pine marten, bighorn sheep, the 
        largest free-roaming elk herd in the nation and a variety of 
other wildlife species still inhabit the region.
    (b) Hells Canyon/Chief Joseph National Preserve.--There is hereby 
established as a unit of the National Park System the Hells Canyon/
Chief Joseph National Preserve, which consists of approximately 
1,439,444 acres as delineated on the maps entitled Hells Canyon/Chief 
Joseph National Park and Preserve and dated January 2003.
    (c) Management and Administration.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of the Interior, acting 
        through the National Park Service, shall administer the Hells 
        Canyon/Chief Joseph National Preserve. In administering the 
        national preserve, the Secretary of the Interior shall give 
        primary consideration to protecting and restoring terrestrial, 
        atmospheric and aquatic ecosystems and habitats, natural 
        scenery, water quality and fisheries habitat, biological 
        diversity, wilderness values, and wildlife habitat.
            (2) Road closures; construction prohibition.--
                    (A) In general.--Within the national preserve, the 
                Secretary shall not authorize nor permit the 
                construction of any road on public land and shall 
                implement a program for road closures based on the 
                needs of wildlife, the review required by title VI, the 
                prevention of the spread of non-native vegetation and 
                the public need for back country areas.
                    (B) Reconstruction.--The reconstruction of certain 
                roads on public lands in the national preserve shall be 
                limited to the prevention of resource damage and shall 
                be subject to a definition of roads. Such definition 
                shall be carried out in the comprehensive management 
                planning process required by subsection (e) and shall 
                distinguish constructed roads from primitive roads. 
                Primitive roads shall not be reconstructed.
                    (C) Private roads.--Private road closures and 
                construction or reconstruction shall be subject to 
                subsection (e)(3).
            (3) Grazing.--Within the national preserve, the Secretary 
        shall close to commercial livestock grazing all livestock 
        allotments not under contract to private permittees as of the 
        date of the enactment of this Act. During the 5-year period 
        beginning on that date, the Secretary shall negotiate with 
        existing permittees to purchase active livestock allotments 
        within the national preserve. At the end of such period, the 
        Secretary shall cancel any remaining permits without 
        compensation and close the allotments. All purchased allotments 
        shall be closed to commercial livestock grazing.
            (4) Timber removal.--The removal of timber or other 
        vegetation on public lands within the national preserve shall 
        be limited to scientific and medicinal research, and permitted 
        subject to special rules. However, the Secretary shall allow 
        the noncommercial removal of wood, including firewood 
        gathering.
            (5) Motorized uses.--Within the national preserve, the 
        Secretary shall regulate all motorized uses to meet the 
        objectives stated in paragraph (1). Exclusion of terrestrial, 
        aerial, or aquatic motorized uses shall be implemented for 
        specific places, times, or both at the discretion of the 
        Secretary to protect the resource values referred to in 
        paragraph (1). The use of motorized watercraft is prohibited 
        within the national preserve, except on the scenic designated 
        portion of the Snake Wild and Scenic River, subject to 
        regulation that may require exclusion of such use in certain 
        places or during certain times.
    (d) Effect of Establishment.--
            (1) Wilderness areas and rivers.--Establishment of the 
        Hells Canyon/Chief Joseph National Preserve shall not change 
        the boundaries of, or legislative directives applicable to, 
        wilderness areas and wild and scenic rivers that exist within 
        the national preserve and are delineated on the maps referred 
        to in subsection (b).
            (2) Hells canyon national recreation area.--The Hells 
        Canyon/Chief Joseph National Preserve replaces the Hells Canyon

with State and local governments in the promulgation of such 
regulations.
            (4) Restoration.--The comprehensive management plan shall 
        set forth a distinctive program for the science-based 
        restoration of unique native ecological components, including 
        riparian area rehabilitation, the enhancement of depleted 
        native plant and animal species, elimination of non-native 
        species deemed to be a threat to biodiversity, and the 
reintroduction of select native species that have been extirpated.
    (f) Hunting and Fishing.--Within the Hells Canyon/Chief Joseph 
National Preserve, the Secretary of the Interior shall allow the 
continuation of hunting and fishing, as administered by the States of 
Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. The Secretary may preclude hunting in 
specific areas only to pursue the directives of subsection (c)(1) and 
only after collaboration with appropriate officials of these States.
    (g) Involvement in Snake River Dams Relicensing.--The Secretary of 
the Interior shall authorize the direct involvement of the Department 
of the Interior in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission process for 
the relicensing of the Hells Canyon Dams complex, including the 
Brownlee, Oxbow, and Hells Canyon Dams. Within this process, the 
representatives of the Secretary shall advocate for a determination of 
these dams that restores and protects the natural and ecosystem values 
of the Snake River below Oxbow Dam. The Secretary also shall pursue the 
relocation of those powerlines from Oxbow and Hells Canyon Dams located 
within the national preserve to locations outside of the preserve.
    (h) Involvement of Tribes.--The Secretary of the Interior shall 
ensure adherence to the treaty obligations of the United States with 
Native American tribes that maintain certain rights on ceded lands 
within the Hells Canyon/Chief Joseph National Preserve. The Secretary 
shall provide for consultation with Native American tribes that 
maintain certain rights on ceded lands. Involvement of the Tribes may 
include financial allocation to ensure their direct participation in 
land management activities and policy, upon their request.

       TITLE V--NATIONAL WILDLAND RESTORATION AND RECOVERY SYSTEM

SEC. 501. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) Certain National Forest System lands and surrounding 
        areas have been damaged by unwise resource extraction and 
        development activities and practices, and the productive 
        potential of the lands and waters of these areas has been 
        reduced by development activities.
            (2) Recovery activities are required to reverse severe 
        damage to native fish and wildlife populations and water 
        quality in these areas.
            (3) Recovery work associated with these areas will create 
        new job opportunities for local communities, assist in the 
        economic transition ongoing in the region, and contribute to 
        the economic sustainability of these rural areas by restoring 
        the productive capability of the land.

SEC. 503. MANAGEMENT OF RECOVERY SYSTEM.

    (a) Management During Recovery.--
            (1) Restoration.--All lands within the Recovery System 
        shall be managed so as to restore their native vegetative cover 
        and reduce or eliminate invasive non-native species and native 
        species diversity, stabilize slopes and soils to prevent or 
        reduce further erosion, recontour slopes to their original 
        contours, remove barriers to natural fish spawning runs, and 
        generally restore, as much as possible, such lands to their 
        natural condition as existed prior to their entry and 
        development.
            (2) Water quality restoration.--In the management of 
        Recovery System lands, special consideration shall be given to 
        restoration of water quality in the Recovery System.
            (3) Management methods.--Recovery System lands shall be 
        managed using methods such as road obliteration, planting of 
        trees and other vegetation native to the lands, and removal by 
        heavy equipment of sediment from streambeds. Existing methods 
        developed by the Forest Service, the National Park Service, and 
        other persons shall be considered and, when appropriate, 
        applied to the lands within the Recovery System. To the extent 
        practicable, the Secretary shall carry out this section using 
        existing, available equipment. When renting or leasing heavy 
        equipment necessary for recovery efforts pursuant to this 
        section, the Secretary shall use local contractors to the 
        extent practicable.
    (b) Post Recovery Management.--When recovery is achieved for a 
component of the Recovery System, the Forest Service shall evaluate the 
suitability of such component for inclusion in the National Wilderness 
Preservation System or for other uses consistent with the purposes of 
this Act. The Forest Service shall make a recommendation concerning the 
future management status of the component, and shall submit the 
recommendation and an evaluation to the Congress. The evaluation shall 
be conducted in the same manner as, and subject to the same 
requirements that apply to, the preparation of an environmental impact 
statement under section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy 
Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C)). The evaluation shall include 
documentation of the component's values as wilderness and as wildlife 
habitat, its role in maintaining water quality and native biodiversity, 
its role in the forest reserve system, a list of alternative 
designations for the component consistent with the purposes of this 
Act, and a roadless inventory for the component. No provision of this 
subsection shall be construed to diminish the responsibilities of the 
Secretary of Agriculture with respect to land and resource management 
plans under section 6 of the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources 
Planning Act of 1974 (16 U.S.C. 1604).

SEC. 504. NATIONAL WILDLAND RECOVERY CORPS.

    (a) Establishment.--There is hereby established a special unit of 
the Forest Service, to be known as the National Wildland Recovery 
Corps. The National Wildland Recovery Corps shall hire the necessary 
personnel and purchase the necessary equipment to carry out its land 
recovery responsibilities under this title.
    (b) Recovery Plans.--Not later than 3 years after the date of the 
enactment of this Act, the National Wildland Recovery Corps shall 
develop a wildland recovery plan for each area of the Recovery System. 
Each recovery plan shall detail necessary work and funding requirements 
needed to implement the management direction established under section 
503. Each recovery plan shall take into account the specific conditions 
of an area in the Recovery System, including soil type, slope, native 
species composition, road densities, forest cover, the number of road 
crossings and culverts, and when possible, predevelopment conditions. 
Each recovery plan shall set forth definite timelines for expected 
recovery of the area to which the plan applies, including a list of 
management activities planned each year, with projected dates for 
recovery. Each recovery plan shall map out the portion, within the area 
of the Recovery System to which the plan applies, which will be 
recovered using active management efforts, as well as the portion of 
such area in which natural recovery will occur. Upon completion, a 
recovery plan shall become an amendment to the land and resource 
management plan for the unit of the National Forest System to which the 
plan applies.
    (c) Evaluation.--The National Wildland Recovery Corps shall use 
measurable criteria to judge the success of recovery efforts taken 
pursuant to this section. Such criteria shall include the results of 
sediment monitoring, reductions in open and total road densities, 
percent forest cover, increase in stream mileage available to native 
fish migrations, the results of hydrological measurements to determine 
water flow rates for key watersheds, and the abundance of management 
indicator species that are indicative of ecosystem health.
    (d) Authorization of Appropriations.--There are authorized to be 
appropriated such sums as may be necessary to carry out this section.

                TITLE VI--IMPLEMENTATION AND MONITORING

SEC. 601. IMPLEMENTATION REPORT.

        shall include status reports on the progress of ecosystem 
        protection, corridor consolidation, and forest recovery efforts 
        and reports on the status of threatened and endangered species 
        which are primary indicators of ecosystem health.
    (c) Wildlife Movements.--The interagency team shall assess the 
potential for facilitating wildlife movements across or under major 
highways and rail lines within the biological corridors established in 
title II. This assessment shall identify major crossing points and 
identify possible management actions to enhance the suitability of such 
crossing points as movement corridors, including underpasses, 
overpasses, and other methods for reducing the danger to native 
wildlife while facilitating movements within the Northern Rockies 
Bioregion.

SEC. 603. ROADLESS LANDS EVALUATION.

    (a) Evaluation Required.--Roadless lands greater than 1,000 acres 
in size, that are located within the National Forest System in the 
State of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, or Wyoming and that are 
not designated as components of the National Wilderness Preservation 
System (under this or any other Act) shall be identified and evaluated 
by the panel of independent scientists appointed under section 601. In 
identifying and evaluating these lands, the panel shall make use of 
existing satellite information and Geographic Information System data 
developed by the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the 
United States Fish and Wildlife Service, in addition to other 
information sources. The panel shall study the role of such lands in 
maintaining biological diversity in the Northern Rockies and as part of 
the overall forest reserve system. The panel shall make recommendations 
regarding the management of the lands, and shall include the 
recommendations in the report required by section 601.
    (b) Prohibition.--Until the Congress enacts a law stating 
otherwise, no new road construction or reconstruction, or timber 
harvest (except firewood gathering) shall be allowed in the lands 
described in subsection (a). Additionally, no oil or gas leasing, 
mining, or other development which impairs the natural and roadless 
qualities of these lands shall be allowed on the lands.

term ``protected areas'' means the Wilderness areas, National Park and 
Preserve Study areas, Wildland Recovery areas, Wild and Scenic Rivers, 
and biological corridors designated by this Act.
    (b) Nonexclusive Access.--In recognition of the past use of 
portions of the protected areas by Native Americans for traditional 
cultural and religious purposes, the Secretary of Agriculture and the 
Secretary of the Interior shall ensure nonexclusive access to these 
protected areas by native people for such traditional cultural and 
religious purposes. Such access shall be consistent with the purpose 
and intent of Public Law 95-341 (42 U.S.C. 1996; commonly known as the 
American Indian Religious Freedom Act). The Secretaries, in accordance 
with such Act, upon request of an Indian tribe, may from time-to-time 
temporarily close to the general public use of one or more specific 
portions of these protected areas in order to protect the privacy of 
religious activities and cultural uses in such portions by an Indian 
people. As part of the preparation of general management plans for the 
protected areas, the Secretaries shall request that the chief executive 
officers of appropriate Indian tribes make recommendations with respect 
to assuring access to important sites, enhancing the privacy of 
traditional cultural and religious activities, and protecting cultural 
and religious sites.
    (c) Cooperative Agreement.--The Forest Service and Bureau of Land 
Management shall enter into cooperative management agreements with the 
appropriate Indian tribes to assure protection of religious, burial, 
and gathering sites in the protected areas, and shall work 
cooperatively on the management of all uses in the protected areas that 
impact Indian lands and people.
