earned in a single year from such stocks. The Secretary shall accept
each qualified bid in rank order of bid score from the lowest to the
highest until acceptance of the next qualified bid with the next lowest
bid score would cause the reduction cost to exceed the reduction loan's
maximum amount. Acceptance of a bid by the Secretary shall create a
binding reduction contract between the United States and the person
whose bid is accepted, the performance of which shall be subject only to
the conclusion of a successful referendum, except that a person whose
bid is accepted by the Secretary under this section shall relinquish all
permits in the reduction fishery and any Dungeness crab and Pink shrimp
permits issued by Washington, Oregon, or California; except that the
Secretary shall revoke the Pacific groundfish permit, as well as all
Federal fishery licenses, fishery permits, area, and species
endorsements, and any other fishery privileges issued to a vessel or
vessels (or to persons on the basis of their operation or ownership of
that vessel or vessels) removed under the program.
(g) The Secretary shall establish separate reduction loan sub-
amounts and repayment fees for fish sellers in the reduction fishery and
for fish sellers in each of the fee-share fisheries by dividing the
total ex-vessel dollar value during the bid scoring period of all
reduction vessel landings from the reduction fishery and from each of
the fee-share fisheries by the total such value of all such landings for
all such fisheries; and multiplying the reduction loan amount by each of
the quotients resulting from each of the divisions above. Each of the
resulting products shall be the reduction loan sub-amount for the
reduction fishery and for each of the fee-share fisheries to which each
of such products pertains; except that, each fish seller in the
reduction fishery and in each of the fee-share fisheries shall pay the
fees required by the reduction loan sub-amounts allocated to it under
this paragraph; except that, the Secretary may enter into agreements
with Washington, Oregon, and California to collect any fees established
under this paragraph.
(h) Notwithstanding 46 U.S.C. App. 1279(b)(4), the reduction loan's
term shall not be less than 30 years.
(i) It is the sense of the Congress that the States of Washington,
Oregon, and California should revoke all relinquishment permits in each
of the fee-share fisheries immediately after reduction payment, and
otherwise to implement appropriate State fisheries management and
conservation provisions in each of the fee-share fisheries that
establishes a program that meets the requirements

[[Page 82]]

117 STAT. 82

of 16 U.S.C. 141861a(b)(1)(B) as if it were applicable to fee-share
fisheries.
(j) The term ``fee-share fishery'' means a fishery, other than the
reduction fishery, whose members are eligible to vote in a referendum
for an industry fee system under paragraph (c). The term ``reduction
fishery'' means that portion of a fishery holding limited entry fishing
permits endorsed for the operation of trawl gear and issued under the
Federal Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan.
Sec. 213. (a) The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is
authorized to enter into a lease arrangement whereby the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will relocate the National
Weather Service Forecasting Office in Galveston County, League City,
Texas to a Galveston County facility and, in exchange, Galveston County
may use the existing National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
National Weather Service Forecasting Office.
(b) Neither the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
National Weather Service nor Galveston County will charge the other rent
for use of the space and each will be responsible for the operation,
maintenance and renovation costs it incurs.
Sec. 214. [NOTE: 2 USC 900 note.] (a) Hereafter, habitat
conservation activities, enforcement and surveillance--cooperative
enforcement and vessel monitoring, stock assessments--data collection,
and highly migratory shark fishery research under the heading,
``National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Operations, Research
and Facilities'', shall be considered to be within the ``Coastal
Assistance sub-category'' in section 250(c)(4)(K) of the Balanced Budget
and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.

(b) For fiscal year 2004 and thereafter, response and restoration
activities, Cooperative Research, Protected Species activities,
Endangered Species Act--Marine Mammals, Sea Turtles and Other Species,
Endangered Species Act--Right Whales, Marine Mammal Protection, and Sea
Grant (except for the fellowship program) under the heading, ``National

transparency and accountability

agencies.

adequately provide their citizens with social, political,
economic, and legal benefits and opportunities, and undermine

Senate Committees on Appropriations.
Sec. 314. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, none of the
funds in this Act may be used for GSA Telecommunication Centers.
Sec. 315. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for fiscal

of the ``Jobs in the Woods'' Program established in Region 10 of the
Forest Service to individuals and entities in historically timber-
dependent areas in the States of Washington, Oregon, northern
California, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska that have been affected by
reduced timber harvesting on Federal lands. The Secretaries shall
consider the benefits to the local economy in evaluating

[[Page 273]]

117 STAT. 273

bids and designing procurements which create economic opportunities for
local contractors.
Sec. 316. Amounts deposited during fiscal year 2002 in the roads and
trails fund provided for in the 14th paragraph under the heading
``FOREST SERVICE'' of the Act of March 4, 1913 (37 Stat. 843; 16 U.S.C.
501), shall be used by the Secretary of Agriculture, without regard to
the State in which the amounts were derived, to repair or reconstruct
roads, bridges, and trails on National Forest System lands or to carry
out and administer projects to improve forest health conditions, which
may include the repair or reconstruction of roads, bridges, and trails
on National Forest System lands in the wildland-community interface
where there is an abnormally high risk of fire. The projects shall
emphasize reducing risks to human safety and public health and property
and enhancing ecological functions, long-term forest productivity, and
biological integrity. The projects may be completed in a subsequent
fiscal year. Funds shall not be expended under this section to replace
funds which would otherwise appropriately be expended from the timber
salvage sale fund. Nothing in this section shall be construed to exempt
any project from any environmental law.
Sec. 317. Other than in emergency situations, none of the funds in
this Act may be used to operate telephone answering machines during core

being contacted.
Sec. 318. No timber sale in Region 10 shall be advertised if the
indicated rate is deficit when appraised using a residual value approach
that assigns domestic Alaska values for western redcedar. Program
accomplishments shall be based on volume sold. Should Region 10 sell, in
fiscal year 2003, the annual average portion of the decadal allowable
sale quantity called for in the current Tongass Land Management Plan in
sales which are not deficit when appraised using a residual value
approach that assigns domestic Alaska values for western redcedar, all
of the western redcedar timber from those sales which is surplus to the
needs of domestic processors in Alaska, shall be made available to
domestic processors in the contiguous 48 United States at prevailing
domestic prices. Should Region 10 sell, in fiscal year 2003, less than
the annual average portion of the decadal allowable sale quantity called
for in the Tongass Land Management Plan in sales which are not deficit
when appraised using a residual value approach that assigns domestic
Alaska values for western redcedar, the volume of western redcedar
timber available to domestic processors at prevailing domestic prices in
the contiguous 48 United States shall be that volume: (i) which is
surplus to the needs of domestic processors in Alaska, and (ii) is that
percent of the surplus western redcedar volume determined by calculating
the ratio of the total timber volume which has been sold on the Tongass
to the annual average portion of the decadal allowable sale quantity
called for in the current Tongass Land Management Plan. The percentage
shall be calculated by Region 10 on a rolling basis as each sale is sold
(for purposes of this amendment, a ``rolling basis'' shall mean that the
determination of how much western redcedar is eligible for sale to
various markets shall be made at the time each sale is awarded). Western
redcedar shall be deemed ``surplus to the needs of domestic processors
in Alaska'' when the

[[Page 274]]

117 STAT. 274

timber sale holder has presented to the Forest Service documentation of
the inability to sell western redcedar logs from a given sale to
domestic Alaska processors at a price equal to or greater than the log
selling value stated in the contract. All additional western redcedar
volume not sold to Alaska or contiguous 48 United States domestic
processors may be exported to foreign markets at the election of the
timber sale holder. All Alaska yellow cedar may be sold at prevailing
export prices at the election of the timber sale holder.
Sec. 319. [NOTE: 16 USC 460l-6a note.] A project undertaken by the
Forest Service under the Recreation Fee Demonstration Program as
authorized by section 315 of the Department of the Interior and Related
Agencies Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1996, as amended, shall not
result in--
(1) displacement of the holder of an authorization to
provide commercial recreation services on Federal lands. Prior
to initiating any project, the Secretary shall consult with
potentially affected holders to determine what impacts the
project may have on the holders. Any modifications to the
authorization shall be made within the terms and conditions of
the authorization and authorities of the impacted agency.
(2) the return of a commercial recreation service to the
Secretary for operation when such services have been provided in
the past by a private sector provider, except when--
(A) the private sector provider fails to bid on such
opportunities;
(B) the private sector provider terminates its
relationship with the agency; or
(C) the agency revokes the permit for non-compliance
with the terms and conditions of the authorization.

In such cases, the agency may use the Recreation Fee Demonstration
Program to provide for operations until a subsequent operator can be
found through the offering of a new prospectus.
Sec. 320. [NOTE: 16 USC 1604 note.] Prior to October 1, 2003, the
Secretary of Agriculture shall not be considered to be in violation of
subparagraph 6(f)(5)(A) of the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources
Planning Act of 1974 (16 U.S.C. 1604(f)(5)(A)) solely because more than
15 years have passed without revision of the plan for a unit of the
National Forest System. Nothing in this section exempts the Secretary
from any other requirement of the Forest and Rangeland Renewable
Resources Planning Act (16 U.S.C. 1600 et seq.) or any other law:
Provided, That if the Secretary is not acting expeditiously and in good
faith, within the funding available, to revise a plan for a unit of the
National Forest System, this section shall be void with respect to such
plan and a court of proper jurisdiction may order completion of the plan
on an accelerated basis.

the authority of the Secretary of Agriculture to enter into an agreement
under the first section of Public Law 94-148 (16 U.S.C. 565a-1) for a
purpose described in such section includes the authority to use that
legal instrument when the principal purpose of the resulting
relationship is to the mutually significant benefit of the Forest
Service and the other party or parties to the agreement, including
nonprofit entities. An agreement entered into under this section shall
not be subject to Public Law 95-224, Federal Grant and Cooperative
Agreement Act (1977).

representative of the King of Spain, which grant was recognized
and confirmed by Congress in 1858 (11 Stat. 374); and
(2) in 1994, the Pueblo filed a civil action against the
Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture in
the United States District Court for the District of Columbia
(Civil No. 1:94CV02624), asserting that Federal surveys of the
grant boundaries erroneously excluded certain land within the
Cibola National Forest, including a portion of the Sandia
Mountain Wilderness.

(b) Purposes.--The purposes of this title are--
(1) to establish the T'uf Shur Bien Preservation Trust Area
in the Cibola National Forest;
(2) to confirm the status of national forest land and

This title may be cited as the ``National Forest Organizational Camp

SEC. 502. [NOTE: 16 USC 6231.] FINDINGS, PURPOSE, AND DEFINITIONS.

(a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
(1) Organizational camps, such as those administered by the
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and faith-based and community-based
organizations, provide a valuable service to young people,
individuals with a disability, and their families by promoting
physical, mental, and spiritual health through activities
conducted in a natural environment.
(2) The 192,000,0000 acres of national forests and
grasslands of the National Forest System managed for multiple
uses by the Forest Service provides an ideal setting for such
organizational camps.
(3) The Federal Government should charge land use fees for
the occupancy and use of National Forest System lands by such
organizational camps that, while based on the fair market value
of the land in use, also recognize the benefits provided to
society by such organizational camps, do not preclude the
ability of such organizational camps from utilizing these lands,
and permit capital investment in, and maintenance of, camp
facilities by such organizational camps or their sponsoring
organizations.
(4) Organizational camps should--
(A) ensure that their facilities meet applicable
building and safety codes, including fire and health
codes;
(B) have annual inspections as required by local
law, including at a minimum inspections for fire and
food safety; and
(C) have in place safety plans that address fire and
medical emergencies and encounters with wildlife.

(b) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this Act to establish a land use
fee system that provides for an equitable return to the Federal
Government for the occupancy and use of National Forest System lands by
organizational camps that serve young people or individuals with a
disability.
(c) Definitions.--In this Act:
(1) The term ``organizational camp'' means a public or
semipublic camp that--

[[Page 295]]

117 STAT. 295

(A) is developed on National Forest System lands by
a nonprofit organization or governmental entity;
(B) provides a valuable service to the public by
using such lands as a setting to introduce young people
or individuals with a disability to activities that they
may not otherwise experience and to educate them on
natural resource issues; and
(C) does not have as its primary purpose raising
revenue through commercial activities.
(2) The term ``Secretary'' means the Secretary of
Agriculture, acting through the Chief of the Forest Service.
(3) The term ``individual with a disability'' has the
meaning given the term in section 7(20) of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 705(20)).
(4) The term ``children at risk'' means children who are
raised in poverty or in single-parent homes or are subject to
such circumstances as parental drug abuse, homelessness, or
child abuse.

controlling interest in the corporation;

the sale or transfer of a controlling interest in the
partnership or limited liability company; and

organizational camp subject to this Act to another
party.
