              TITLE VIII--UMPQUA RIVER LAND EXCHANGE STUDY

SEC. 801. UMPQUA RIVER LAND EXCHANGE STUDY: POLICY AND DIRECTION.

    (a) In General.--The Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture 
(Secretaries) are hereby authorized and directed to consult, coordinate 
and cooperate with the Umpqua Land Exchange Project (ULEP), affected 
units and agencies of State and local government, and, as appropriate, 
the World Forestry Center and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, to 
assist ULEP's ongoing efforts in studying and analyzing land exchange 
opportunities in the Umpqua River basin and to provide scientific, 
technical, research, mapping and other assistance and information to 
such entities. Such consultation, coordination and cooperation shall at 
a minimum include, but not be limited to--
            (1) working with ULEP to develop or assemble comprehensive 
        scientific and other information (including comprehensive and 
        integrated mapping) concerning the Umpqua River basin's 
        resources of forest, plants, wildlife, fisheries (anadromous 
        and other), recreational opportunities, wetlands, riparian 
        habitat and other physical or natural resources;
            (2) working with ULEP to identify general or specific areas 
        within the basin where land exchanges could promote 
        consolidation of timberland ownership for long-term, sustained 
        timber production; protection and improvement of habitat for 
        plants, fish and wildlife (including any federally listed 
        threatened or endangered species); protection of drinking water 
        supplies; recovery of threatened and endangered species; 
        protection and improvement of wetlands, riparian lands and 
        other environmentally sensitive areas; consolidation of land 
        ownership for improved public access and a broad array of 
        recreational uses; and consolidation of land ownership to 
        achieve management efficiency and reduced costs of 
        administration; and
            (3) developing a joint report for submission to the 
        Congress which discusses land exchange opportunities in the 
        basin and outlines either a specific land exchange proposal or 
        proposals which may merit consideration by the Secretaries or 
        the Congress, or ideas and recommendations for new 
        authorizations, direction, or changes in existing law or policy 
        to expedite and facilitate the consummation of beneficial land 
        exchanges in the basin via administrative means.
    (b) Matters for Specific Study.--In analyzing land exchange 
opportunities with ULEP, the Secretaries shall give priority to 
assisting ULEP's ongoing efforts in--
            (1) studying, identifying and mapping areas where the 
        consolidation of land ownership via land exchanges could 
        promote the goals of long term species protection, including 
        the goals of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 more 
        effectively than current land ownership patterns and whether 
        any changes in law or policy applicable to such lands after 
        consummation of an exchange would be advisable or necessary to 
        achieve such goals;
            (2) studying, identifying and mapping areas where land 
        exchanges might be utilized to better satisfy the goals of 
        sustainable timber harvest, including studying whether changes 
        in existing law or policy applicable to such lands after 
        consummation of an exchange would be advisable or necessary to 
        achieve such goals;
            (3) identifying issues and studying options and 
        alternatives, including possible changes in existing law or 
        policy, to insure that combined post-exchange revenues to units 
        of local government from State and local property, severance 
        and other taxes or levies and shared Federal land receipts will 
        approximate pre-exchange revenues;
            (4) identifying issues and studying whether possible 
        changes in law, special appraisal instruction, or changes in 
        certain Federal appraisal procedures might be advisable or 
        necessary to facilitate the appraisal of potential exchange 
        lands which may have special characteristics or restrictions 
        affecting land values;
            (5) identifying issues and studying options and 
        alternatives, including changes in existing laws or policy, for 
        achieving land exchanges without reducing the net supply of 
        timber available to small businesses;
            (6) identifying, mapping, and recommending potential 
        changes in land use plans, land classifications, or other 
        actions which might be advisable or necessary to expedite, 
        facilitate or consummate land exchanges in certain areas; and
            (7) analyzing potential sources for new or enhanced 
        Federal, State or other funding to promote improved resource 
        protection, species recovery, and management in the basin.

SEC. 802. REPORT TO CONGRESS.

    No later than February 1, 1998, ULEP and the Secretaries shall 
submit a joint report to the Committee on Resources of the United 
States House of Representatives and to the Committee on Energy and 
Natural Resources of the United States Senate concerning their studies, 
findings, recommendations, mapping and other activities conducted 
pursuant to this title.
