    Sec. 219. (a) Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Organ procurement organizations play an important role 
        in the effort to increase organ donation in the United States.
            (2) The current process for the certification and 
        recertification of organ procurement organizations conducted by 
        the Department of Health and Human Services has created a level 
        of uncertainty that is interfering with the effectiveness of 
        organ procurement organizations in raising the level of organ 
        donation.
            (3) The General Accounting Office, the Institute of 
        Medicine, and the Harvard School of Public Health have 
        identified substantial limitations in the organ procurement 
        organization certification and recertification process and have 
        recommended changes in that process.
            (4) The limitations in the recertification process include:
                    (A) An exclusive reliance on population-based 
                measures of performance that do not account for the 
                potential in the population for organ donation and do 
                not permit consideration of other outcome and process 
                standards that would more accurately reflect the 
                relative capability and performance of each organ 
                procurement organization.
                    (B) A lack of due process to appeal to the Secretary 
                of Health and Human Services for recertification on 
                either substantive or procedural grounds.
            (5) The Secretary of Health and Human Services has the 
        authority under section 1138(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Social Security 
        Act (42 U.S.C. 1320b-8(b)(1)(A)(i)) to extend the period for 
        recertification of an organ procurement organization from 2

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-29]]

        to 4 years on the basis of its past practices in order to avoid 
        the inappropriate disruption of the nation's organ system.
            (6) The Secretary of Health and Human Services can use the 
        extended period described in paragraph (5) for recertification 
        of all organ procurement organizations to--
                    (A) develop improved performance measures that would 
                reflect organ donor potential and interim outcomes, and 
                to test these measures to ensure that they accurately 
                measure performance differences among the organ 
                procurement organizations; and
                    (B) improve the overall certification process by 
                incorporating process as well as outcome performance 
                measures, and developing equitable processes for 
                appeals.

    (b) Section 371(b)(1) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 
273(b)(1)) is amended--
            (1) by redesignating subparagraphs (D) through (G) as 
        subparagraphs (E) through (H), respectively;
            (2) by realigning the margin of subparagraph (F) (as so 
        redesignated) so as to align with subparagraph (E) (as so 
        redesignated); and
            (3) by inserting after subparagraph (C) the following:
            ``(D) notwithstanding any other provision of law, has met 
        the other requirements of this section and has been certified or 
        recertified by the Secretary within the previous 4-year period 
        as meeting the performance standards to be a qualified organ 
        procurement organization through a process that either--
                    ``(i) granted certification or recertification 
                within such 4-year period with such certification or 
                recertification in effect as of January 1, 2000, and 
                remaining in effect through the earlier of--

                1, 2002, that--
                          ``(I) require recertifications of qualified 
                      organ procurement organizations not more 
                      frequently than once every 4 years;
                          ``(II) rely on outcome and process performance 
                      measures that are based on empirical evidence, 
                      obtained through reasonable efforts, of organ 
                      donor potential and other related factors in each 
                      service area of qualified organ procurement 
                      organizations;
                          ``(III) use multiple outcome measures as part 
                      of the certification process; and
                          ``(IV) provide for a qualified organ 
                      procurement organization to appeal a 
                      decertification to the Secretary on substantive 
                      and procedural grounds;''.

    Sec. 220. (a) In order for the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention to carry out international HIV/AIDS and other infectious 
disease, chronic and environmental disease, and other health activities 
abroad during fiscal year 2001, the Secretary of Health and Human

transfer: Provided, That the Appropriations Committees of both Houses of 
Congress are notified at least 15 days in advance of any transfer.
    Sec. 305. The Comptroller General of the United States shall 
evaluate the extent to which funds made available under part A of title 
I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 are allocated to 
schools and local educational agencies with the greatest concentrations 
of school-age children from low-income families, the extent to which 
allocations of such funds adjust to shifts in concentrations of pupils 
from low-income families in different regions, States, and substate 
areas, the extent to which the allocation of such funds encourages the 
targeting of State funds to areas with higher concentrations of children 
from low-income families, and the implications of current distribution 
methods for such funds, shall make formula and other policy 
recommendations to improve the targeting of such funds to more 
effectively serve low-income children in both rural and urban areas, and 
shall prepare interim and final reports based on the results of the 
study, to be submitted to Congress not later than February 1, 2001, and 
April 1, 2001.
    Sec. 306. (a) From the amount appropriated for title VI of the 
Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 in accordance with this 
section, the Secretary of Education--
            (1) shall make available a total of $6,000,000 to the 
        Secretary of the Interior (on behalf of the Bureau of Indian 
        Affairs) and the outlying areas for activities under this 
        section; and
            (2) shall allocate the remainder by providing each State the 
        same percentage of that remainder as it received of the funds 
        allocated to States under section 307(a)(2) of the Department of 
        Education Appropriations Act, 1999.

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-42]]

    (b)(1) Each State that receives funds under this section shall 
distribute 100 percent of such funds to local educational agencies, of 
which--
            (A) 80 percent of such amount shall be allocated to such 
        local educational agencies in proportion to the number of 
        children, aged 5 to 17, who reside in the school district served 
        by such local educational agency from families with incomes 
        below the poverty line (as defined by the Office of Management 
        and Budget and revised annually in accordance with section 
        673(2) of the Community Services Block Grant Act (42 U.S.C. 
        9902(2))) applicable to a family of the size involved for the 
        most recent fiscal year for which satisfactory data are 
        available compared to the number of such individuals who reside 
        in the school districts served by all the local educational 
        agencies in the State for that fiscal year; and
            (B) 20 percent of such amount shall be allocated to such 
        local educational agencies in accordance with the relative 
        enrollments of children, aged 5 to 17, in public and private 
        nonprofit elementary and secondary schools within the boundaries 
        of such agencies.

    (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), if the award to a local 
educational agency under this section is less than the starting salary 
for a new fully qualified teacher in that agency, who is certified 
within the State (which may include certification through State or local 
alternative routes), has a baccalaureate degree, and demonstrates the 
general knowledge, teaching skills, and subject matter knowledge 
required to teach in his or her content areas, that agency may use funds 
under this section to (A) help pay the salary of a full- or part-time 
teacher hired to reduce class size, which may be in combination with 
other Federal, State, or local funds; or (B) pay for activities 
described in subsection (c)(2)(A)(iii) which may be related to teaching 
in smaller classes.
    (c)(1) The basic purpose and intent of this section is to reduce 
class size with fully qualified teachers. Each local educational agency 
that receives funds under this section shall use such funds to carry out 
effective approaches to reducing class size with fully qualified 
teachers who are certified within the State, including teachers 
certified through State or local alternative routes, and who demonstrate 
competency in the areas in which they teach, to improve educational 
achievement for both regular and special needs children, with particular 
consideration given to reducing class size in the early elementary 
grades for which some research has shown class size reduction is most 
effective.
    (2)(A) Each such local educational agency may use funds under this 
section for--
            (i) recruiting (including through the use of signing 
        bonuses, and other financial incentives), hiring, and training 
        fully qualified regular and special education teachers (which 
        may include hiring special education teachers to team-teach with 
        regular teachers in classrooms that contain both children with 
        disabilities and non-disabled children) and teachers of special-
        needs children who are certified within the State, including 
        teachers certified through State or local alternative routes, 
        have a baccalaureate degree and demonstrate the general 
        knowledge, teaching skills, and subject matter knowledge 
        required to teach in their content areas;

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-43]]

            (ii) testing new teachers for academic content knowledge and 
        to meet State certification requirements that are consistent 
        with title II of the Higher Education Act of 1965; and
            (iii) providing professional development (which may include 
        such activities as those described in section 2210 of the 
        Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, opportunities 
        for teachers to attend multi-week institutes, such as those made 
        available during the summer months that provide intensive 
        professional development in partnership with local educational 
        agencies and initiatives that promote retention and mentoring), 
        to teachers, including special education teachers and teachers 
        of special-needs children, in order to meet the goal of ensuring 
        that all instructional staff have the subject matter knowledge, 
        teaching knowledge, and teaching skills necessary to teach 
        effectively in the content area or areas in which they provide 
        instruction, consistent with title II of the Higher Education 
        Act of 1965.

    (B)(i) Except as provided under clause (ii), a local educational 
agency may use not more than a total of 25 percent of the award received 
under this section for activities described in clauses (ii) and (iii) of 
subparagraph (A).
            (ii) A local educational agency in which 10 percent or more 
        of teachers in elementary schools, as defined by section 
        14101(14) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, 
        have not met applicable State and local certification 
        requirements (including certification through State or local 
        alternative routes), or if such requirements have been waived, 
        may use more than 25 percent of the funds it receives under this 
        section for activities described in subparagraph (A)(iii) to 
        help teachers who are not certified by the State become 
        certified, including through State or local alternative routes, 
        or to help teachers affected by class size reduction who lack 
        sufficient content knowledge to teach effectively in the areas 
        they teach to obtain that knowledge, if the local educational 
        agency notifies the State educational agency of the percentage 
        of the funds that it will use for the purpose described in this 
        clause.

    (C) A local educational agency that has already reduced class size 
in the early grades to 18 or less children (or has already reduced class 
size to a State or local class size reduction goal that was in effect on 
the day before the enactment of the Department of Education 
Appropriations Act, 2000, if that State or local educational agency goal 
is 20 or fewer children) may use funds received under this section--
            (i) to make further class size reductions in grades 
        kindergarten through 3;
            (ii) to reduce class size in other grades; or
            (iii) to carry out activities to improve teacher quality 
        including professional development.

    (D) If a local educational agency has already reduced class size in 
the early grades to 18 or fewer children and intends to use funds 
provided under this section to carry out professional development 
activities, including activities to improve teacher quality, then the 
State shall make the award under subsection (b) to the local educational 
agency.
    (3) Each such agency shall use funds under this section only to 
supplement, and not to supplant, State and local funds that,

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-44]]

in the absence of such funds, would otherwise be spent for activities 
under this section.
    (4) No funds made available under this section may be used to 
increase the salaries or provide benefits, other than participation in 
professional development and enrichment programs, to teachers who are 
not hired under this section. Funds under this section may be used to 
pay the salary of teachers hired under section 307 of the Department of 
Education Appropriations Act, 1999, or under section 310 of the 
Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2000.
    (d)(1) Each State receiving funds under this section shall report on 
activities in the State under this section, consistent with section 
6202(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
    (2) Each State and local educational agency receiving funds under 
this section shall publicly report to parents on its progress in 
reducing class size, increasing the percentage of classes in core 
academic areas taught by fully qualified teachers who are certified 
within the State and demonstrate competency in the content areas in 
which they teach, and on the impact that hiring additional highly 
qualified teachers and reducing class size, has had, if any, on 
increasing student academic achievement.
    (3) Each school receiving funds under this section shall provide to 
parents, upon request, the professional qualifications of their child's 
teacher.
    (e) If a local educational agency uses funds made available under 
this section for professional development activities, the agency shall 
ensure for the equitable participation of private nonprofit elementary 
and secondary schools in such activities. Section 6402 of the Elementary 
and Secondary Education Act of 1965 shall not apply to other activities 
under this section.
    (f ) A local educational agency that receives funds under this 
section may use not more than 3 percent of such funds for local 
administrative costs.
    (g) Each local educational agency that desires to receive funds 
under this section shall include in the application required under 
section 6303 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 a 
description of the agency's program to reduce class size by hiring 
additional highly qualified teachers.
    (h) No funds under this section may be used to pay the salary of any 
teacher hired with funds under section 307 of the Department of 
Education Appropriations Act, 1999, unless, by the start of the 2001-
2002 school year, the teacher is certified within the State (which may 
include certification through State or local alternative routes) and 
demonstrates competency in the subject areas in which he or she teaches.
    (i) Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of this 
Act, the Secretary shall provide specific notification to each local 
educational agency eligible to receive funds under this part regarding 
the flexibility provided under subsection (c)(2)(B)(ii) and the ability 
to use such funds to carry out activities described in subsection 
(c)(2)(A)(iii).

1994 (Public Law 103-382) is amended--
            (1) in subsection 412(c)(1), after ``period of'' and before 
        ``years,'', by striking ``3'' and inserting ``4''; and

        granted 3 year terms, whose terms are in effect on the date of

        2001, shall have their terms extended by 1 year.''.

Secretary shall restore the eligibility to participate in a program 
under subpart 1 of part A, part B, or part D of an institution that did 
not appeal its loss of eligibility within 30 days of receiving 
notification if the Secretary determines, on a case-by-case basis, that 
the institution's failure to appeal was substantially justified under 
the circumstances, and that--
            ``(i) the institution made a timely request that the 
        appropriate guaranty agency correct errors in the draft data 
        used to calculate the institution's cohort default rate;
            ``(ii) the guaranty agency did not correct the erroneous

    (b) The amendment made by subsection (a) of this section shall be 
effective for cohort default rate calculations for fiscal years 1997 and

                TITLE VIII--EARLY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

SEC. 801. SHORT TITLE; FINDINGS.

    (a) Short Title.--This title may be cited as the ``Early Learning 
Opportunities Act''.
    (b) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) medical research demonstrates that adequate stimulation 
        of a young child's brain between birth and age 5 is critical to 
        the physical development of the young child's brain;
            (2) parents are the most significant and effective teachers 
        of their children, and they alone are responsible for choosing 
        the best early learning opportunities for their child;
            (3) parent education and parent involvement are critical to 
        the success of any early learning program or activity;
            (4) the more intensively parents are involved in their 
        child's early learning, the greater the cognitive and 
        noncognitive benefits to their children;
            (5) many parents have difficulty finding the information and 
        support the parents seek to help their children grow to their 
        full potential;
            (6) each day approximately 13,000,000 young children, 
        including 6,000,000 infants or toddlers, spend some or all of 
        their day being cared for by someone other than their parents;
            (7) quality early learning programs, including those 
        designed to promote effective parenting, can increase the 
        literacy rate, the secondary school graduation rate, the 
        employment rate, and the college enrollment rate for children 
        who have participated in voluntary early learning programs and 
        activities;

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-80]]

            (8) early childhood interventions can yield substantial 
        advantages to participants in terms of emotional and cognitive 
        development, education, economic well-being, and health, with 
        the latter two advantages applying to the children's families as 
        well;
            (9) participation in quality early learning programs, 
        including those designed to promote effective parenting, can 
        decrease the future incidence of teenage pregnancy, welfare 
        dependency, at-risk behaviors, and juvenile delinquency for 
        children;
            (10) several cost-benefit analysis studies indicate that for 
        each $1 invested in quality early learning programs, the Federal 
        Government can save over $5 by reducing the number of children 
        and families who participate in Federal Government programs like 
        special education and welfare;
            (11) for children placed in the care of others during the 
        workday, the low salaries paid to the child care staff, the lack 
        of career progression for the staff, and the lack of child 
        development specialists involved in early learning and child 
        care programs, make it difficult to attract and retain the 
        quality of staff necessary for a positive early learning 
        experience;
            (12) Federal Government support for early learning has 
        primarily focused on out-of-home care programs like those 
        established under the Head Start Act, the Child Care and 
        Development Block Grant of 1990, and part C of the Individuals 
        with Disabilities Education Act, and these programs--
                    (A) serve far fewer than half of all eligible 
                children;
                    (B) are not primarily designed to provide support 
                for parents who care for their young children in the 
                home; and
                    (C) lack a means of coordinating early learning 
                opportunities in each community; and
            (13) by helping communities increase, expand, and better 
        coordinate early learning opportunities for children and their 
        families, the productivity and creativity of future generations 
        will be improved, and the Nation will be prepared for continued 
        leadership in the 21st century.

SEC. 802. PURPOSES.

    The purposes of this title are--
            (1) to increase the availability of voluntary programs, 
        services, and activities that support early childhood 
        development, increase parent effectiveness, and promote the 
        learning readiness of young children so that young children 
        enter school ready to learn;
            (2) to support parents, child care providers, and caregivers 
        who want to incorporate early learning activities into the daily 
        lives of young children;
            (3) to remove barriers to the provision of an accessible 
        system of early childhood learning programs in communities 
        throughout the United States;
            (4) to increase the availability and affordability of 
        professional development activities and compensation for 
        caregivers and child care providers; and
            (5) to facilitate the development of community-based systems 
        of collaborative service delivery models characterized by 
        resource sharing, linkages between appropriate supports, and 
        local planning for services.

    Sec. 209. Implementation of Steller Sea Lion Protective Measures.--
    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the western population of Steller sea lions has 
        substantially declined over the last 25 years.
            (2) scientists should closely research and analyze all 
        possible factors relating to such decline, including the 
        possible interactions between commercial fishing and Steller sea 
        lions and the localized depletion hypothesis;
            (3) the authority to manage commercial fisheries in Federal 
        waters lies with the regional councils and the Secretary of 
        Commerce (hereafter in this section ``Secretary'') pursuant to 
        the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act 
        (hereafter in this section ``Magnuson-Stevens Act''); and

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-177]]

            (4) the Secretary of Commerce shall comply with the 
        Magnuson-Stevens Act when using fishery management plans and 
        regulations to implement the decisions made pursuant to findings 
        under the Endangered Species Act, and shall utilize the 
        processes and procedures of the regional fishery management 
        councils as required by the Magnuson-Stevens Act.

    (b) Independent Scientific Review.--The North Pacific Fishery 
Management Council (hereafter in this section ``North Pacific Council) 
shall utilize the expertise of the National Academy of Sciences to 
conduct an independent scientific review of the November 30, 2000 
Biological Opinion for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf of 
Alaska groundfish fisheries (hereafter in this section ``Biological 
Opinion''), its underlying hypothesis, and the Reasonable and Prudent 
Alternatives (hereafter in this section ``Alternatives'') contained 
therein. The Secretary shall cooperate with the independent scientific 
review, and the National Academy of Sciences is requested to give its 
highest priority to this review.
    (c) Preparation of Fishery Management Plans and Regulations To 
Implement Protective Measures in the November 30, 2000 Biological 
Opinion.--
            (1) The Secretary of Commerce shall submit to the North 
        Pacific Council proposed conservation and management measures to 
        implement the Alternatives contained in the November 30, 2000 
        Biological Opinion for the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf 
        of Alaska groundfish fisheries. The North Pacific Council shall 
        prepare and transmit to the Secretary a fishery management plan 
        amendment or amendments to implement such Alternatives that are 
        consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Act (including requirements 
        in such Act relating to best available science, bycatch 
        reduction, impacting on fishing communities, the safety of life 
        at sea, and public comment and hearings.)
            (2) The Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska 
        groundfish fisheries shall be managed in a manner consistent 
        with the Alternatives contained in the Biological Opinion, 
        except as otherwise provided in this section. The Alternatives 
        shall become fully effective no later than January 1, 2002, as 
        revised if necessary and appropriate based on the independent 
        scientific review referred to in subsection (b) and other new 
        information, and shall be phased in in 2001 as described in 
        paragraph (3).
            (3) The 2001 Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska 
        groundfish fisheries shall be managed in accordance with the 
        fishery management plan and Federal regulations in effect for 
        such fisheries prior to July 15, 2000, including--
                    (A) conservative total allowable catch levels;
                    (B) no entry zones within three miles of rookeries;
                    (C) restricted harvest levels near rookeries and 
                haul-outs;
                    (D) federally-trained observers;
                    (E) spatial and temporal harvest restrictions;
                    (F) federally-mandated bycatch reduction programs; 
                and
                    (G) additional conservation benefits provided 
                through cooperative fishing arrangements,

        and said regulations are hereby restored to full force and 
        effect.

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-178]]

            (4) The Secretary shall amend these regulations by January 
        20, 2001, after consultation with the North Pacific Council and 
        in a manner consistent with all law, including the Magnuson-
        Stevens Act, and consistent with the Alternatives to the maximum 
        extent practicable, subject to the other provisions of this 
        subsection.
            (5) The harvest reduction requirement (``Global Control 
        Rule'') shall take effect immediately in any 2001 groundfish 
        fishery in which it applies, but shall not cause a reduction in 
        the total allowable catch of any fishery of more than 10 
        percent.
            (6) In enforcing regulations for the 2001 fisheries, the 
        Secretary, upon recommendation of the North Pacific Council, may 
        open critical habitat where needed, adjust seasonal catch 
        levels, and take other measures as needed to ensure that harvest 
        levels are sufficient to provide income from these fisheries for 
        small boats and Alaskan on-shore processors that is no less than 
        in 1999.
            (7) The regulations that are promulgated pursuant to 
        paragraph (4) shall not be modified in any way other than upon 
        recommendation of the North Pacific Council, before March 15, 
        2001.

appropriated to the Secretary of Commerce to remain available until 
expended to develop and implement a coordinated, comprehensive research 
and recovery program for the Steller sea lion, which shall be designed 
to study--
            (1) available prey species;
            (2) predator/prey relationships;
            (3) predation by other marine mammals;
            (4) interactions between fisheries and Steller sea lions, 
        including the localized depletion theory;
            (5) regime shift, climate change, and other impacts 
        associated with changing environmental conditions in the North 
        Pacific and Bering Sea;
            (6) disease;
            (7) juvenile and pup survival rates;
            (8) population counts;

    Sec. 323. Fort Irwin National Training Center Expansion. (a) 
Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California, 
        is the only instrumented training area in the world suitable for 
        live fire training of heavy brigade-sized military forces and 
        thus provides the Army with essential training opportunities 
        necessary to maintain and improve military readiness and promote 
        national security.
            (2) The National Training Center must be expanded to meet 
        the critical need of the Army for additional training lands 
        suitable for the maneuver of large numbers of military personnel 
        and equipment, which is necessitated by advances

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-185]]

        in equipment, by doctrinal changes, and by Force XXI doctrinal 
        experimentation requirements.
            (3) The lands being considered for expansion of the National 
        Training Center are home to the desert tortoise and other 
        species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act of 
        1973, and the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the 
        Interior, in developing a plan for expansion of the National 
        Training Center, must provide for such expansion in a manner 
        that complies with the Endangered Species Act of 1973, the 
        National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and other applicable 
        laws.
            (4) In order for the expansion of the National Training 
        Center to be implemented on an expedited basis, the Secretaries 
        should proceed without delay to define with specificity the key 
        elements of the expansion plan, including obtaining early input 
        regarding national security requirements, Endangered Species Act 
        of 1973 compliance and mitigation, and National Environmental 
        Policy Act of 1969 compliance.

    (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this section is to expedite the 
expansion of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California, in 
a manner that is fully compliant with environmental laws.
    (c) Preparation of Proposed Expansion Plan.--
            (1) Preparation required.--The Secretary of the Army and the 
        Secretary of the Interior (in this section referred to as the 
        ``Secretaries'') shall jointly prepare a proposed plan for the 
        expansion of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, 
        California.
            (2) Submission and availability.--The plan required by 
        paragraph (1) (in this section referred to as the ``proposed 
        expansion plan'') shall be completed not later than 120 days 
        after the date of the enactment of this Act. When completed, the 
        Secretaries shall make the proposed expansion plan available to 
        the public and shall publish in the Federal Register a ``notice 
        of availability'' concerning the proposed expansion plan.

    (d) Key Elements of Proposed Expansion Plan.--
            (1) Joint report.--Not later than 45 days after the date of 
        the enactment of this Act, the Secretaries shall submit to 
        Congress a joint report that identifies the key elements of the 
        proposed expansion plan.
            (2) Lands withdrawal and reservation.--The proposed 
        expansion plan shall include the withdrawal and reservation of 
        an appropriate amount of public lands for--
                    (A) the conduct of combined arms military training 
                at the National Training Center;
                    (B) the development and testing of military 
                equipment at the National Training Center;
                    (C) other defense-related purposes; and
                    (D) conservation and research purposes.
            (3) Conservation measures.--The proposed expansion plan 
        shall also include a general description of conservation 
        measures, anticipated to cost approximately $75,000,000, that 
        may be necessary and appropriate to protect and promote the 
        conservation of the desert tortoise and other endangered or 
        threatened species and their critical habitats in designated 
        wildlife management areas in the West Mojave Desert. The 
        conservation measures may include--

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-186]]

                    (A) the establishment of one or more research 
                natural areas, which may include lands both within and 
                outside the National Training Center;
                    (B) the acquisition of private and State lands 
                within the wildlife management areas in the West Mojave

                structures that would promote the conservation of 
                endangered or threatened species and their critical 
                habitats;
                    (D) the funding of research studies; and
                    (E) other conservation measures.

    (d) Preliminary Review of Expansion Plan.--
            (1) Review required.--Not later than 90 days after the date 
        of the enactment of this Act, the Director of the United States 
        Fish and Wildlife Service shall submit to the Secretaries a 
        preliminary review of the proposed expansion plan (as developed 
        as of that date). In the preliminary review, the Director shall 
        identify, with as much specificity as possible, an approach for 
        implementing the proposed expansion plan consistent with the 
        Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).
            (2) Relation to formal review.--The preliminary review under 
        paragraph (1) shall not constitute a formal consultation under 
        section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 
        1536), but shall be used to assist the Secretaries in more 
        precisely defining the nature and scope of an expansion plan for 
        the National Training Center that is likely to satisfy 
        requirements of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and to 
        expedite the formal consultation process under section 7 of such 
        Act.
            (3) Consideration of preliminary review.--In preparing the 
        proposed expansion plan, the Secretaries shall take into account 
        the content of the preliminary review by the Director of the 
        United States Fish and Wildlife Service under paragraph (1).

    (e) Draft Legislation.--The Secretaries shall submit to Congress 
with the proposed expansion plan a draft of proposed legislation 
providing for the withdrawal and reservation of public lands for the 
expansion of the National Training Center. It is the sense of the 
Congress that the proposed legislation should contain a provision that, 
if enacted, would prohibit ground-disturbing military use of the land to 
be withdrawn and reserved by the legislation until the Secretaries have 
certified that there has been full compliance with the appropriate 
provisions of the legislation, the Endangered Species Act of 1973, the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and other applicable laws.
    (f ) Consultation Under Endangered Species Act of 1973.--The 
Secretaries shall initiate the formal consultation required under 
section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1536) with 
respect to expansion of the National Training Center as soon as 
practicable and shall complete such consultation not later than 2 years 
after the date of the enactment of this Act.
    (g) Environmental Review.--Not later than 6 months following 
completion of the formal consultation required under section 7 of the 
Endangered Species Act of 1973 with respect to expansion of the National 
Training Center, the Secretaries shall complete any analysis required 
under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 with respect to the 
proposed expansion of the National Training Center. The analysis shall 
be coordinated, to the extent

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-187]]

practicable and appropriate, with the review of the West Mojave 
Coordinated Management Plan that, as of the date of the enactment of 
this Act, is being undertaken by the Bureau of Land Management.
    (h) Funding.--
            (1) Implementation of conservation measures.--There are 
        authorized to be appropriated $75,000,000 to the Secretary of 
        the Army for the implementation of conservation measures 
        necessary for the final expansion plan for the National Training 
        Center to comply with the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
            (2) Implementation of section.--The amounts of $2,500,000 
        for ``Operation and Maintenance, Army'' and $2,500,000 for 
        ``Management of Lands and Resources, Bureau of Land Management'' 
        are hereby appropriated to the Secretary of the Army and the 
        Secretary of the Interior, respectively, only to undertake and 
        complete on an expedited basis the activities specified in this 
        section.

    (d)(1) The Secretary of Commerce (hereinafter ``the Secretary'') 
shall, after notice and opportunity for public comment, adopt final 
regulations not later than May 1, 2001 to implement a fishing capacity 
reduction program for crab fisheries included in the Fishery Management 
Plan for Commercial King and Tanner Crab Fisheries in the Bering Sea and 
Aleutian Islands (hereinafter ``BSAI crab fisheries''). In implementing 
the program the Secretary shall--
            (A) reduce the fishing capacity in the BSAI crab fisheries 
        by permanently reducing the number of license limitation program 
        crab licenses;
            (B) permanently revoke all fishery licenses, fishery 
        permits, area and species endorsements, and any other fishery 
        privileges, for all fisheries subject to the jurisdiction of the 
        United States, issued to a vessel or vessels (or to persons on 
        the basis of their operation or ownership of that vessel or 
        vessels) for which a BSAI crab fisheries reduction permit is 
        surrendered and revoked under section 6011(b) of title 50, Code 
        of Federal Regulations;
            (C) ensure that the Secretary of Transportation is notified 
        of each vessel for which a reduction permit is surrendered and 
        revoked under the program, with a request that such Secretary 
        permanently revoke the fishery endorsement of each such vessel 
        and refuse permission to transfer any such vessel to a foreign 
        flag under paragraph (5);
            (D) ensure that vessels removed from the BSAI crab fisheries 
        under the program are made permanently ineligible to participate 
        in any fishery worldwide, and that the owners of such vessels 
        contractually agree that such vessels will operate only under 
        the United States flag or be scrapped as a reduction vessel 
        pursuant to section 600.1011(c) of title 50, Code of Federal 
        Regulations;
            (E) ensure that vessels removed from the BSAI crab 
        fisheries, the owners of such vessels, and the holders of 
        fishery permits for such vessels forever relinquish any claim 
        associated with such vessel, permits, and any catch history 
        associated with such vessel or permits that could qualify such 
        vessel, vessel owner, or permit holder for any present or future 
        limited access system fishing permits in the United States 
        fisheries based on such vessel, permits, or catch history;
            (F) not include the purchase of Norton Sound red king crab 
        or Norton Sound blue king crab endorsements in the program, 
        though any such endorsements associated with a reduction permit 
        or vessel made ineligible or scrapped under the program shall 
        also be surrendered and revoked as if surrendered and revoked 
        pursuant to section 600.1011(b) of title 50, Code of Federal 
        Regulations;

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-241]]

            (G) seek to obtain the maximum sustained reduction in 
        fishing capacity at the least cost by establishing bidding 
        procedures that--
                    (i) assign a bid score to each bid by dividing the 
                price bid for each reduction permit by the total value 
                of the crab landed in the most recent 5-year period in 
                each crab fishery from 1990 through 1999 under that 
                permit, with the value for each year determined by 
                multiplying the average price per pound published by the 
                State of Alaska in each year for each crab fishery 
                included in such reduction permit by the total pounds 
                landed in each crab fishery under that permit in that 
                year; and
                    (ii) use a reverse auction in which the lowest bid 
                score ranks first, followed by each bid with the next 
                lowest bid score, until the total bid amount of all bids 
                equals a reduction cost that the next lowest bid would 
                cause to exceed $100,000,000;
            (H) not waive or otherwise make inapplicable any 
        requirements of the License Limitation Program applicable to 
        such crab fisheries, in particular any requirements in sections 
        679.4(k) and (l) of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations;
            (I) not waive or otherwise make inapplicable any catcher 
        vessel sideboards implemented under the American Fisheries Act 
        (AFA), except that the North Pacific Fishery Management Council 
        shall recommend to the Secretary and to the State of Alaska, not 
        later than February 16, 2001, and the Secretary and the State of 
        Alaska shall implement as appropriate, modifications to such 
        sideboards to the extent necessary to permit AFA catcher vessels 
        that remain in the crab fisheries to share proportionately in 
        any increase in crab harvest opportunities that accrue to all 
        remaining AFA and non-AFA catcher vessels if the fishing 
        capacity reduction program required by this section is 
        implemented;
            (J) establish sub-amounts and repayment fees for each BSAI 
        crab fishery prosecuted under a separate endorsement for 
        repayment of the reduction loan, such that--
                    (i) a reduction loan sub-amount is established for 
                each separate BSAI crab fishery (other than Norton Sound 
                red king crab or Norton Sound blue king crab) by 
                dividing the total value of the crab landed in that 
                fishery under all reduction permits by the total value 
                of all crab landed under such permits in the BSAI crab 
                fisheries (determined using the same average prices and 
                years used under subparagraph (G)(i) of this paragraph), 
                and multiplying the reduction loan amount by the 
                percentage expressed by such ratio; and
                    (ii) fish sellers who participate in the crab 
                fishery under each endorsement repay the reduction loan 
                sub-amount attributable to that fishery; and
            (K) notwithstanding section 1111(b) of the Merchant Marine 
        Act, 1936 (46 U.S.C. App. 1279f(b)(4)), establish a repayment 
        period for the reduction loan of not less than 30 years.
            (2)(A) Only persons to whom a non-interim BSAI crab license 
        and an area/species endorsement have been issued (other than 
        persons to whom only a license and an area/species endorsement 
        for Norton Sound red king crab or Norton Sound blue king crab 
        have been issued) for vessels that--

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-242]]

                    (i) qualify under the License Limitation Program 
                criteria set forth in section 679.4 of title 50, Code of 
                Federal Regulations, and
                    (ii) have made at least one landing of BSAI crab in 
                either 1996, 1997, or prior to February 7 in 1998, may 
                submit a bid in the fishing capacity reduction program 
                established by this section.
            (B) After the date of enactment of this section--
                    (i) no vessel 60 feet or greater in length overall 
                may participate in any BSAI crab fishery (other than for 
                Norton Sound red king crab or Norton Sound blue king 
                crab) unless such vessel meets the requirements set 
                forth in subparagraphs (A)(i) and (A)(ii) of this 
                paragraph; and
                    (ii) no vessel between 33 and 60 feet in length 
                overall may participate in any BSAI crab fishery (other 
                than for Norton Sound red king crab or Norton Sound blue 
                king crab) unless such vessel meets the requirements set 
                forth in subparagraph (A)(i) of this paragraph. Nothing 
                in this paragraph shall be construed to affect the 
                requirements for participation in the fisheries for 
                Norton Sound red king crab or Norton Sound blue king 
                crab. The Secretary may, on a case by case basis and 
                after notice and opportunity for public comment, waive 
                the application of subparagraph (A)(ii) of this 
                paragraph if the Secretary determines such waiver is 
                necessary to implement one of the specific exemptions to 
                the recent participation requirement that were 
                recommended by the North Pacific Fishery Management 
                Council in the record of its October, 1998 meeting.
            (3) The fishing capacity reduction program required under 
        this subsection shall be implemented under this subsection and 
        sections 312(b)-(e) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
        and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b)-(e)). Section 312 and the 
        regulations found in Subpart L of Part 600 of title 50, Code of 
        Federal Regulations, shall apply only to the extent such section 
        or regulations are not inconsistent with or made inapplicable by 
        the specific provisions of this subsection. Sections 600.1001, 
        600.1002, 600.1003, 600.1005, 600.1010(b), 600.1010(d)(1), 
        600.1011(d), the last sentence of 600.1011(a), and the last 
        sentence of 600.1014(f ) of such Subpart shall not apply to the 
        program implemented under this subsection. The program shall be 
        deemed accepted under section 600.1004, and any time period 
        specified in Subpart L that would prevent the Secretary from 
        complying with the May 1, 2001 date required by this subsection 
        shall be modified as appropriate to permit compliance with that 
        date. The referendum required for the program under this 
        subsection shall be a post-bidding referendum under section 
        600.1010 of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations.
            (4)(A) The fishing capacity reduction program required under 
        this subsection is authorized to be financed in equal parts 
        through a reduction loan of $50,000,000 under sections 1111 and 
        1112 of title XI of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 U.S.C. 
        App. 1279f and 1279g) and $50,000,000 which is authorized to be 
        appropriated for the purposes of such program.

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-243]]

            (B) Of the $1,000,000 appropriated in section 120 of 
        division A of Public Law 105-277 for the cost of a direct loan 
        in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands crab fisheries--
                    (i) $500,000 shall be for the cost of guaranteeing 
                the reduction loan required under subparagraph (A) of 
                this paragraph in accordance with the requirements of 
                the Federal Credit Reform Act; and
                    (ii) $500,000 shall be available to the Secretary to 
                pay for the cost of implementing the fishing capacity 
                reduction program required by this subsection.
            (C) The funds described in this subsection shall remain 
        available, without fiscal year limitation, until expended. Any 
        funds not used for the fishing capacity reduction program 
        required by this subsection, whether due to a rejection by 
        referendum or otherwise, shall be available on or after October 
        15, 2002, without fiscal year limitation, for assistance to 
        fishermen or fishing communities.
            (5)(A) The Secretary of Transportation shall, upon 
        notification and request by the Secretary, for each vessel 
        identified in such notification and request--
                    (i) permanently revoke any fishery endorsement 
                issued to such vessel under section 12108 of title 46, 
                United States Code; and
                    (ii) refuse to grant the approval required under 
                section 9(c)(2) of the Shipping Act, 1916 (46 U.S.C.

        surrendered and revoked under the fishing capacity reduction 
        program required by this section from engaging in fishing

        program or the promulgation of regulations to implement such 
        program required by this subsection. Nothing in this subsection 
        shall be construed to prohibit the North Pacific Fishery 
        Management Council from recommending, or the Secretary from 
        approving, changes to any Fishery Management Plan, License 
        Limitation Program, or American Fisheries Act provisions 
        affecting catcher vessel sideboards in accordance with 
        applicable law: Provided, That except as specifically provided 
        in this subsection, such Council may not recommend, and the 
        Secretary may not approve, any action that would have the

        effect of increasing the number of vessels eligible to 
        participate in the BSAI crab fisheries after March 1, 2001.

        higher than in 1991, continuing the alarming trend of sharply 
        increasing steel imports over the past decade.
            (2) Unprecedented levels of steel imports flooded the United 
        States market in 1998 and 1999, causing a crisis in which 
        thousands of steelworkers were laid off and six steel companies 
        went bankrupt.
            (3) The domestic steel industry still has not had an 
        opportunity to recover from the 1998-1999 steel import crisis, 
        and steel imports are again causing serious injury to United 
        States steel producers and workers.
            (4) Total steel imports through August 2000 are 17 percent 
        higher than over the same period in 1999 and greater even than 
        imports over the same period in 1998, a record year.
            (5) Steel prices continue to be depressed, with hot-rolled 
        steel prices 12 percent lower in August 2000 than in the first 
        quarter of 1998, and average import customs values for all steel 
        products more than 15 percent lower over the same period.
            (6) The United States Government must maintain and fully 
        enforce all existing relief against foreign unfair trade.
            (7) The United States steel industry is a clean, highly 
        efficient industry having modernized itself at great human and 
        financial cost, shedding over 330,000 jobs and investing more 
        than $50,000,000,000 over the last 20 years.
            (8) Capacity utilization in the United States steel industry 
        has fallen sharply since the beginning of the year and the 
        market capitalization and debt ratings of the major United 
        States steel firms are at precarious levels.
            (9) The Department of Commerce recently documented the 
        underlying market-distorting practices and longstanding 
        structural problems that plague the global steel trade with 
        excess capacity and cause diversion of unfairly traded foreign 
        steel to the United States.
            (10) The President recognized that unfair trade played a 
        significant role in the devastating import surge of steel and 
        recognized the need to vigorously enforce the trade laws.

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-251]]

    (b) Congress calls upon the President--
            (1) to take all appropriate action within his power to 
        provide relief from injury caused by steel imports; and
            (2) to immediately request the United States International 
        Trade Commission to commence an expedited investigation for 
        positive adjustment under section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 
        of such steel imports.

effect during fiscal year 2001.

Hemophilia Relief Fund, as provided by Public Law 105-369, $105,000,000, 
of which notwithstanding any other provision of law $10,000,000 shall be 
for program management of the Health Resources and Services 
Administration, to remain available until expended.
    Sec. 151. (a) There is hereby appropriated to a separate account to

the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act, $60,400,000, 
to remain available until expended: Provided, That the Secretary of

under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act, such 
sums as may be necessary in FY 2001 to carry out those authorities.
    (b) For purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985, amounts appropriated under subsection (a) shall be 
direct spending: Provided, That amounts appropriated annually thereafter

        TITLE III--COLORADO UTE SETTLEMENT ACT AMENDMENTS OF 2000

SEC. 301. SHORT TITLE; FINDINGS; DEFINITIONS.

    (a) Short Title.--This title may be cited as the ``Colorado Ute 
Settlement Act Amendments of 2000''.
    (b) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) In order to provide for a full and final settlement of 
        the claims of the Colorado Ute Indian Tribes on the Animas and 
        La Plata Rivers, the Tribes, the State of Colorado, and certain 
        of the non-Indian parties to the Agreement have proposed certain 
        modifications to the Colorado Ute Indian Water Rights Settlement 
        Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-585; 102 Stat. 2973).
            (2) The claims of the Colorado Ute Indian Tribes on all 
        rivers in Colorado other than the Animas and La Plata Rivers 
        have been settled in accordance with the provisions of the 
        Colorado Ute Indian Water Rights Settlement Act of 1988 (Public 
        Law 100-585; 102 Stat. 2973).
            (3) The Indian and non-Indian communities of southwest 
        Colorado and northwest New Mexico will be benefited by a 
        settlement of the tribal claims on the Animas and La Plata 
        Rivers that provides the Tribes with a firm water supply without 
        taking water away from existing uses.
            (4) The Agreement contemplated a specific timetable for the 
        delivery of irrigation and municipal and industrial water

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-259]]

        and other benefits to the Tribes from the Animas-La Plata 
        Project, which timetable has not been met. The provision of 
        irrigation water can not presently be satisfied under the 
        current implementation of the Federal Water Pollution Control 
        Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.) and the Endangered Species Act of 
        1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).
            (5) In order to meet the requirements of the Endangered 
        Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and in particular 
        the various biological opinions issued by the Fish and Wildlife 
        Service, the amendments made by this title are needed to provide 
        for a significant reduction in the facilities and water supply 
        contemplated under the Agreement.
            (6) The substitute benefits provided to the Tribes under the 
        amendments made by this title, including the waiver of capital 
        costs and the provisions of funds for natural resource 
        enhancement, result in a settlement that provides the Tribes 
        with benefits that are equivalent to those that the Tribes would 
        have received under the Colorado Ute Indian Water Rights 
        Settlement Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-585; 102 Stat. 2973).
            (7) The requirement that the Secretary of the Interior 
        comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 
        U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and other national environmental laws 
        before implementing the proposed settlement will ensure that the 
        satisfaction of the tribal water rights is accomplished in an 
        environmentally responsible fashion.
            (8) In considering the full range of alternatives for 
        satisfying the water rights claims of the Southern Ute Indian 
        Tribe and Ute Mountain Ute Indian Tribe, Congress has held 
        numerous legislative hearings and deliberations, and reviewed 
        the considerable record including the following documents:
                    (A) The Final EIS No. INT-FES-80-18, dated July 1, 
                1980.
                    (B) The Draft Supplement to the FES No. INT-DES-92-
                41, dated October 13, 1992.
                    (C) The Final Supplemental to the FES No. 96-23, 
                dated April 26, 1996;
                    (D) The Draft Supplemental EIS, dated January 14, 
                2000.
                    (E) The Final Supplemental EIS, dated July 2000.
                    (F) The Record of Decision for the Settlement of the 
                Colorado Ute Indian Waters, September 25, 2000.
            (9) In the Record of Decision referred to in paragraph 
        (8)(F), the Secretary determined that the preferred alternative 
        could only proceed if Congress amended the Colorado Ute Indian 
        Water Rights Settlement Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-585; 102 
        Stat. 2973) so as to satisfy the Tribal water rights claim 
        through the construction of the features authorized by this 
        title. The amendments to the Colorado Ute Indian Water Rights 
        Settlement Act of 1988 set forth in this title will provide the 
        Ute Tribes with substitute benefits equivalent to those that the 
        Tribes would have received under the Colorado Ute Indian Water 
        Rights Settlement Act of 1988, in a manner consistent with 
        paragraph (8) and the Federal Government's trust obligation.
            (10) Based upon paragraph (8), it is the intent of Congress 
        to enact legislation that implements the Record of Decision 
        referred to in paragraph (8)(F).

                 TITLE V--LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER REGION

SEC. 501. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Delta Regional Authority Act of 
2000''.

SEC. 502. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the lower Mississippi River region (referred to in this 
        title as the ``region''), though rich in natural and human 
        resources, lags behind the rest of the United States in economic 
        growth and prosperity;
            (2) the region suffers from a greater proportion of 
        measurable poverty and unemployment than any other region of the 
        United States;
            (3) the greatest hope for economic growth and revitalization 
        in the region lies in the development of transportation 
        infrastructure, creation of jobs, expansion of businesses, and 
        development of entrepreneurial local economies;
            (4) the economic progress of the region requires an adequate 
        transportation and physical infrastructure, a skilled and 
        trained workforce, and greater opportunities for enterprise

SEC. 701. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) there is a continuing need for reconciliation between 
        Indians and non-Indians;
            (2) the need may be met partially through the promotion of 
        the understanding of the history and culture of Sioux Indian 
        tribes;
            (3) the establishment of a Sioux Nation Tribal Supreme Court 
        will promote economic development on reservations of the Sioux 
        Nation and provide investors that contribute to that development 
        a greater degree of certainty and confidence by--
                    (A) reconciling conflicting tribal laws; and
                    (B) strengthening tribal court systems;
            (4) the reservations of the Sioux Nation--
                    (A) contain the poorest counties in the United 
                States; and
                    (B) lack adequate tools to promote economic 
                development and the creation of jobs;
            (5) the establishment of a Native American Economic 
        Development Council will assist in promoting economic growth and 
        reducing poverty on reservations of the Sioux Nation by--
                    (A) coordinating economic development efforts;
                    (B) centralizing expertise concerning Federal 
                assistance; and
                    (C) facilitating the raising of funds from private 
                donations to meet matching requirements under certain 
                Federal assistance programs;
            (6) there is a need to enhance and strengthen the capacity 
        of Indian tribal governments and tribal justice systems to 
        address conflicts which impair relationships within Indian 
        communities and between Indian and non-Indian communities and 
        individuals; and
            (7) the establishment of the National Native American 
        Mediation Training Center, with the technical assistance of 
        tribal and Federal agencies, including the Community Relations 
        Service of the Department of Justice, would enhance and 
        strengthen the mediation skills that are useful in reducing 
        tensions and resolving conflicts in Indian communities and 
        between Indian and non-Indian communities and individuals.

SEC. 802. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the year 2000 marks the 175th Anniversary of New York 
        State's creation and stewardship of the Erie Canalway for 
        commerce, transportation, and recreational purposes, 
        establishing the network which made New York the ``Empire 
        State'' and the Nation's premier commercial and financial 
        center;
            (2) the canals and adjacent areas that comprise the Erie 
        Canalway are a nationally significant resource of historic and 
        recreational value, which merit Federal recognition and 
        assistance;

[[Page 114 STAT. 2763A-296]]

            (3) the Erie Canalway was instrumental in the establishment 
        of strong political and cultural ties between New England, 
        upstate New York, and the old Northwest and facilitated the 
        movement of ideas and people ensuring that social reforms like 
        the abolition of slavery and the women's rights movement spread 
        across upstate New York to the rest of the country;
            (4) the construction of the Erie Canalway was considered a 
        supreme engineering feat, and most American canals were modeled 
        after New York State's canal;
            (5) at the time of construction, the Erie Canalway was the 
        largest public works project ever undertaken by a State, 
        resulting in the creation of critical transportation and 
        commercial routes to transport passengers and goods;
            (6) the Erie Canalway played a key role in turning New York 
        City into a major port and New York State into the preeminent 
        center for commerce, industry, and finance in North America and 
        provided a permanent commercial link between the Port of New 
        York and the cities of eastern Canada, a cornerstone of the 
        peaceful relationship between the two countries;
            (7) the Erie Canalway proved the depth and force of American 
        ingenuity, solidified a national identity, and found an enduring 
        place in American legend, song, and art;
            (8) there is national interest in the preservation and 
        interpretation of the Erie Canalway's important historical, 
        natural, cultural, and scenic resources; and
            (9) partnerships among Federal, State, and local governments 
        and their regional entities, nonprofit organizations, and the 
        private sector offer the most effective opportunities for the 
        preservation and interpretation of the Erie Canalway.

    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this title are--
            (1) to designate the Erie Canalway National Heritage 
        Corridor;
            (2) to provide for and assist in the identification, 
        preservation, promotion, maintenance, and interpretation of the 
        historical, natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational 
        resources of the Erie Canalway in ways that reflect its national 
        significance for the benefit of current and future generations;
            (3) to promote and provide access to the Erie Canalway's 
        historical, natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational 
        resources;
            (4) to provide a framework to assist the State of New York, 
        its units of local government, and the communities within the 
        Erie Canalway in the development of integrated cultural, 
        historical, recreational, economic, and community development 
        programs in order to enhance and interpret the unique and 
        nationally significant resources of the Erie Canalway; and
            (5) to authorize Federal financial and technical assistance 
        to the Commission to serve these purposes for the benefit of the 
        people of the State of New York and the Nation.
