Sec. 314. NOTE: Contracts. State listing. Notwithstanding any

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 bids and designing procurements which create economic
opportunities for local contractors.

Sec. 315. Amounts deposited during fiscal year 2004 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

Sec. 316. Other than in emergency situations, none of the funds in

business hours unless such answering

[[Page 3096]]
118 STAT. 3096

machines include an option that enables callers to reach promptly an
individual on-duty with the agency being contacted.
Sec. 317. 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
the current fiscal year, 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 the current fiscal
year, 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:
(1) which is surplus to the needs of domestic processors in Alaska; and
(2) 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 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. 318. Section 3 of the Act of June 9, 1930 (commonly known as
the Knutson-Vandenberg Act; 16 U.S.C. 576b), is amended--
(1) by striking ``The Secretary of Agriculture may, when in
his'' and inserting ``(a) The Secretary of Agriculture may, when
in his or her'';

``(b) Amounts deposited under subsection (a)'';
(2) by striking ``may direct:'' and all that follows through
``That the Secretary of Agriculture'' and inserting ``may
direct. The Secretary of Agriculture''; and
(3) by adding at the end the following new subsection:

``(c) Any portion of the balance at the end of a fiscal year in the
special fund established pursuant to this section that the Secretary of
Agriculture determines to be in excess of the cost of doing work
described in subsection (a) (as well as any portion

[[Page 3097]]
118 STAT. 3097

of the balance in the special fund that the Secretary determined, before
October 1, 2004, to be excess of the cost of doing work described in
subsection (a), but which has not been transferred by that date) shall
be transferred to miscellaneous receipts, National Forest Fund, as a
National Forest receipt, but only if the Secretary also determines
that--
``(1) the excess amounts will not be needed for emergency
wildfire suppression during the fiscal year in which the
transfer would be made; and
``(2) the amount to be transferred to miscellaneous
receipts, National Forest Fund, exceeds the outstanding balance
of unreimbursed funds transferred from the special fund in prior
fiscal years for wildfire suppression.''.

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; and
(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, 2005, 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

Sec. 342. NOTE: Alaska. (a) Findings.--
(1) In 1953, Public Land Order 899 (PLO 899) eliminated
approximately 80 acres from the Tongass National Forest, for the
Community of Elfin Cove, Alaska. From 1953 until 2001, the USDA
Forest Service believed two small islets within the Elfin Cove
Harbor (Lots 1 and 2 of U.S. Survey 13150, approximately 0.29
acres) were included as part of PLO 899. However, due to a
Bureau of Land Management rule in effect when PLO 899 was
issued, ownership of unsurveyed, unmapped islets remained with
the original landowner, in this case the United States.
(2) These two islets are needed by the Community of Elfin
Cove to resolve public health and safety problems.
(3) The two islets serve no national forest purposes, but
the Forest Service has no authority to transfer ownership of
them to the Community of Elfin Cove, without receiving fair
market value for the land interests.
(4) Neither the Bureau of Land Management nor the Forest
Service intended to retain Federal ownership of these two
islets, and they remained in ownership of the United States only
through an inadvertent error.
(5) Conveyance of these two islets from the United States to
the Community of Elfin Cove, Alaska, without consideration, is
in the public interest.

(b) Based on the findings in subsection (a) and notwithstanding any
other provision of law, Congress hereby authorizes and directs the
Secretary of Agriculture to convey in fee simple without compensation,
Lots 1 and 2 of U.S. Survey 13150, comprising approximately 0.29 acres,
to the Community of Elfin Cove, Alaska.
Sec. 343. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, and until
October 1, 2007, the Indian Health Service may not disburse funds for
the provision of health care services pursuant to Public Law 93-638 (25
U.S.C. 450 et seq.) to any Alaska Native village or Alaska Native
village corporation that is located within the area served by an Alaska
Native regional health entity.
(b) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit the
disbursal of funds to any Alaska Native village or Alaska Native village
corporation under any contract or compact entered into prior to May 1,
2004, or to prohibit the renewal of any such agreement.
(c) For the purpose NOTE: Health and health care. of this
section, Eastern Aleutian Tribes, Inc., shall be treated as an Alaska
Native regional health entity to whom funds may be disbursed under this
section.
