            (1) in 1990, pursuant to the Indian Self-Determination and 
        Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA), 25 U.S.C. 450 et seq., a 
        class action lawsuit was filed by Indian tribal contractors and 
        tribal consortia against the United States, the Secretary of the 
        Interior and others seeking money damages, injunctive relief, 
        and declaratory relief for alleged violations of the

[[Page 114 STAT. 948]]

        ISDEAA (Ramah Navajo Chapter v. Lujan, 112 F.3d 1455 (10th Cir. 
        1997));
            (2) the parties negotiated a partial settlement of the claim 
        totaling $76,200,000, plus applicable interest, which was 
        approved by the court on May 14, 1999;
            (3) the partial settlement was paid by the United States in 
        September 1999, in the amount of $82,000,000;
            (4) the Judgment Fund was established to pay for legal 
        judgments awarded to plaintiffs who have filed suit against the 
        United States;
            (5) the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 requires that the 
        Judgment Fund be reimbursed by the responsible agency following 
        the payment of an award from the Fund; and
            (6) the shortfall in contract support payments found by the 
        Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Ramah resulted 
        primarily from the non-payment or underpayment of indirect costs 
        by agencies other than the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the 
        Indian Health Service.

    (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) repayment of the Judgment Fund for the partial 
        settlement in Ramah from the accounts of the Bureau of Indian 
        Affairs and Indian Health Service would significantly reduce 
        funds appropriated to benefit tribes and individual Native 
        Americans; and
            (2) the Secretary of the Interior should work with the 
        Director of the Office of Management and Budget to secure 
        funding for repayment of the judgment in Ramah within the 
        budgets of the agencies that did not pay indirect costs to 
        plaintiffs during the period 1988 to 1993 or paid indirect costs 
        at less than rates provided under the Indian Self-Determination 
        Act during such period.

    Sec. 321. No part of any appropriation contained in this Act shall 
be expended or obligated to complete and issue the 5-year program under 
the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act.
    Sec. 322. None of the funds in this Act may be used to support 
Government-wide administrative functions unless such functions are 
justified in the budget process and funding is approved by the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations.
    Sec. 323. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, none of the 
funds in this Act may be used for GSA Telecommunication Centers or the 
President's Council on Sustainable Development.
    Sec. 324. None of the funds in this Act may be used for planning, 
design or construction of improvements to Pennsylvania Avenue in front

Committees on Appropriations.
    Sec. 325. Amounts deposited during fiscal year 2000 in the roads and 
trails fund provided for in the fourteenth paragraph under the heading 
``FOREST SERVICE'' of the Act of March 4, 1913 (37 Stat. 843; 16 U.S.C.

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

    Sec. 328. No timber sale in Region 10 shall be advertised if the 
indicated rate is deficit when appraised under the transaction evidence 
appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for western red cedar: 
Provided, That sales which are deficit when appraised under the 
transaction evidence appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for 
western red cedar may be advertised upon receipt of a written request by 
a prospective, informed bidder, who has the opportunity to review the 
Forest Service's cruise and harvest cost estimate for that timber. 
Program accomplishments shall be based on volume sold. Should Region 10 
sell, in fiscal year 2001, 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 under the 
transaction evidence appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for 
western red cedar, all of the western red cedar 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 
2001, less than 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 under the transaction evidence 
appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for western red cedar, the 
volume of western red cedar 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 red cedar 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 
red cedar is eligible for sale to various markets shall be made at the 
time each sale is awarded). Western red cedar 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 red cedar logs from a given sale to domestic 
Alaska processors at price equal to or greater than the log selling 
value stated in the contract. All additional western red cedar volume

[[Page 114 STAT. 996]]

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. 329. None of the funds appropriated by this Act shall be used 
to propose or issue rules, regulations, decrees, or orders for the 
purpose of implementation, or in preparation for implementation, of the 
Kyoto Protocol which was adopted on December 11, 1997, in Kyoto, Japan 
at the Third Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework 
Convention on Climate Change, which has not been submitted to the Senate 
for advice and consent to ratification pursuant to article II, section 
2, clause 2, of the United States Constitution, and which has not 
entered into force pursuant to article 25 of the Protocol.
    Sec. 330. <<NOTE: 43 USC 1701 note.>>  In fiscal years 2001 through 
2005, the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture may pilot test 
agency-wide joint permitting and leasing programs, subject to annual 
review of Congress, and promulgate special rules as needed to test the 
feasibility of issuing unified permits, applications, and leases. The 
Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture may make reciprocal 
delegations of their respective authorities, duties and responsibilities 
in support of the ``Service First'' initiative agency-wide to promote 
customer service and efficiency. Nothing herein shall alter, expand or 
limit the applicability of any public law or regulation to lands 
administered by the Bureau of Land Management or the Forest Service.

    Sec. 331. Federal and State Cooperative Watershed Restoration and 
Protection in Colorado. (a) Use of Colorado State Forest Service.--Until 
September 30, 2004, the Secretary of Agriculture, via cooperative 
agreement or contract (including sole source contract) as appropriate, 
may permit the Colorado State Forest Service to perform watershed 
restoration and protection services on National Forest System lands in 
the State of Colorado when similar and complementary watershed 
restoration and protection services are being performed by the State 
Forest Service on adjacent State or private lands. The types of services 
that may be extended to National Forest System lands include treatment 
of insect infected trees, reduction of hazardous fuels, and other 
activities to restore or improve watersheds or fish and wildlife habitat 
across ownership boundaries.
    (b) State as Agent.--Except as provided in subsection (c), a 
cooperative agreement or contract under subsection (a) may authorize the 
State Forester of Colorado to serve as the agent for the Forest Service 
in providing all services necessary to facilitate the performance of 
watershed restoration and protection services under subsection (a). The 
services to be performed by the Colorado State Forest Service may be 
conducted with subcontracts utilizing State contract procedures. 
Subsections (d) and (g) of section 14 of the National Forest Management 
Act of 1976 (16 U.S.C. 472a) shall not apply to services performed under 
a cooperative agreement or contract under subsection (a).
    (c) Retention of NEPA Responsibilities.--With respect to any 
watershed restoration and protection services on National Forest System 
lands proposed for performance by the Colorado State Forest Service 
under subsection (a), any decision required to be made under the

    (b) Findings and Purpose.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress finds that--
                    (A) the existing facilities of the Rocky Mountain 
                Research Station Boise laboratory are outdated and no 
                longer serve as a modern research facility;
                    (B) the Boise laboratory site is in the heart of a 
                Boise city redevelopment zone, and the existing 
                laboratory facilities detract from community improvement 
                efforts;
                    (C) it is desirable to colocate the Boise laboratory 
                with 1 of the State institutions of higher learning in 
                the Boise metropolitan area--
                          (i) to facilitate communications and sharing 
                      of research data between the agency and the Idaho 
                      scientific community;
                          (ii) to facilitate development and maintenance 
                      of the Boise laboratory as a modern, high quality 
                      research facility; and
                          (iii) to reduce costs, better use assets, and 
                      better serve the public; and
                    (D) it is desirable to make the Boise laboratory 
                site available for inclusion in a planned facility that 
                is being developed on adjacent property by the 
                University of Idaho

[[Page 114 STAT. 1005]]

                or the University of Idaho Foundation, a not-for-profit 
                corporation acting on behalf of the University of Idaho, 
                as a multiagency research and education facility to 
                serve various agencies and educational institutions of 
                the United States and the State.

                land and facilities, including condominium interests, to 
                colocate the Rocky Mountain Research Station Boise 
                laboratory with 1 of the State institutions of higher 
                learning in the Boise metropolitan area, using--
                          (i) funds derived from sale or exchange of the 
                      existing Boise laboratory site; and
                          (ii) to the extent the funds received are 
                      insufficient to carry out the acquisition of 
                      replacement research facilities, funds 
                      subsequently made available by appropriation for

    This title may be cited as the ``Cabin User Fee Fairness Act of 
2000''.

SEC. 602. <<NOTE: 16 USC 6201.>>  FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) cabins located on forest land have provided a unique 
        recreation experience to a large number of cabin owners, their 
        families, and guests each year since Congress authorized the 
        recreation residence program in 1915; and
            (2) the fact that current appraisal procedures have, in 
        certain circumstances, been inconsistently applied in 
        determining fair market values for residential lots demonstrates 
        that problems exist in accurately reflecting market values.

        recreation; and
            (2) to develop and implement a more consistent procedure for 
        determining cabin user fees, taking into consideration the 
        limitations of an authorization and other relevant market

                be adjusted, as appropriate.
                    (C) Adjustment process.--
                          (i) In general.--The appraiser shall consider 
                      and adjust, as appropriate, the price of each sale

                      referred to in subparagraph (A)(ii) that--
                                    (I)(aa) are present at, or add value 
                                to, the comparable parcel; but
                                    (bb) are not present at the lot 
                                being appraised; or
                                    (II) are not included in the 
                                appraisal as described in subparagraph

                                the price of a parcel sold is to be 
                                adjusted in accordance with subparagraph 
                                (B), the adjustment may be based on an 
                                analysis of market or cost information 
                                or both.

                                information is used as the basis of an 
                                adjustment under subclause (I), the cost 
                                information shall be supported by direct 
                                market evidence.
                          (iii) Analysis of cost information.--An 
                      analysis of cost information under clause (ii)(I) 
                      should include allowances, as appropriate, if the 
                      allowances are consistent with--
                                    (I) the Uniform Standards of 
                                Professional Appraisal Practice in

                required to recalculate the base cabin user fee).

 SEC. 607. <<NOTE: 16 USC 6206.>>  CABIN USER FEES.

    (a) In General.--The Secretary shall establish the cabin user fee as 
the amount that is equal to 5 percent of the market value of the lot, as 
determined in accordance with section 606, reflecting an adjustment to 
the typical market rate of return due to restrictions imposed by the 
permit, including--
            (1) the limited term of the authorization;
            (2) the absence of significant property rights normally 
        attached to fee simple ownership; and
            (3) the public right of access to, and use of, any open 
        portion of the lot on which the cabin or other enclosed 
        improvements are not located.

[[Page 114 STAT. 1019]]

    (b) Fee for Caretaker Cabin.--The base cabin user fee for a lot on 
which a caretaker cabin is located shall not be greater than the base 
cabin user fee charged for the authorized use of a similar typical lot 
in the tract.
    (c) Annual Cabin User Fee in the Event of Determination Not To 
Reissue Authorization.--If the Secretary determines that an 
authorization should not be reissued at the end of a term, the Secretary 
shall--
            (1) establish as the new base cabin user fee for the 
        remaining term of the authorization the amount charged as the 
        cabin user fee in the year that was 10 years before the year in 
        which the authorization expires; and
            (2) calculate the current cabin user fee for each of the 
        remaining 9 years of the term of the authorization by 
        multiplying--
                    (A) \1/10\ of the new base cabin user fee; by
                    (B) the number of years remaining in the term of the 
                authorization after the year for which the cabin user 
                fee is being calculated.

    (d) Annual Cabin User Fee in Event of Changed Conditions.--If a 
review of a decision to convert a lot to an alternative public use 
indicates that the continuation of the authorization for use and 
occupancy of the cabin by the cabin owner is warranted, and the decision 
is subsequently reversed, the Secretary may require the cabin owner to 
pay any portion of annual cabin user fees that were forgone as a result 
of the expectation of termination of use and occupancy of the cabin by 
the cabin owner.
    (e) Termination of Fee Obligation in Loss Resulting From Acts of God 
or Catastrophic Events.--On a determination by the agency that, because 
of an act of God or a catastrophic event, a lot cannot be safely 
occupied and the authorization for the lot should accordingly be 
terminated, the fee obligation of the cabin owner shall terminate 
effective on the date of the occurrence of the act or event.

 SEC. 608. <<NOTE: 16 USC 6207.>>  ANNUAL ADJUSTMENT OF CABIN USER FEE.

    (a) In General.--The Secretary shall adjust the cabin user fee 
annually, using a rolling 5-year average of a published price index in 
accordance with subsection (b) or (c) that reports changes in rural or 
similar land values in the State, county, or market area in which the 
lot is located.
    (b) Initial Index.--
            (1) In general.--For the period of 10 years beginning on the 
        date of enactment of this title, the Secretary shall use changes 
        in agricultural land prices in the appropriate State or county, 
        as reported in the Index of Agricultural Land Prices published 
        by the Department of Agriculture, to determine the annual 
        adjustment to the cabin user fee in accordance with subsections 
        (a) and (d).
            (2) Statewide changes.--In determining the annual adjustment 
        to the cabin user fee for an authorization located in a county 
        in which agricultural land prices are influenced by the value 
        influences described in section 606(b)(3), the Secretary shall 
        use average statewide changes in the State in which the lot is 
        located.

    (c) New Index.--

[[Page 114 STAT. 1020]]

            (1) In general.-- <<NOTE: Deadline.>> Not later than 10 
        years after the date of enactment of this title, the Secretary 
        may select and use an index other than the method of adjustment 
        of a cabin user fee described in subsection (b)(2) to adjust a 
        cabin user fee if the Secretary determines that a different 
        index better reflects change in the value of a lot over time.
            (2) Selection process.--Before selecting a new index, the 
        Secretary shall--
                    (A) solicit and consider comments from the public; 
                and
                    (B) <<NOTE: Deadline.>>  not later than 60 days 
                before the date on which the Secretary makes a final 
                index selection, submit any proposed selection of a new 
                index to--
                          (i) the Committee on Resources of the House of 
                      Representatives; and
                          (ii) the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, 
                      and Forestry of the Senate.

    (d) Limitation.--In calculating an annual adjustment to the base 
cabin user fee as determined by the initial index described in section 
(b), the Secretary shall--
            (1) limit any annual fee adjustment to an amount that is not 
        more than 5 percent per year when the change in agricultural 
        land values exceeds 5 percent in any 1 year; and
            (2) apply the amount of any adjustment that exceeds 5 
        percent to the annual fee payment for the next year in which the 
        change in the index factor is less than 5 percent.

 SEC. 609. <<NOTE: 16 USC 6208.>>  PAYMENT OF CABIN USER FEES.

    (a) Due Date for Payment of Fees.--A cabin user fee shall be prepaid 
annually by the cabin owner.
    (b) Payment of Equal or Lesser Fee.--If, in accordance with section 
607, the Secretary determines that the amount of a new base cabin user

fee, the Secretary shall require payment of the new base cabin user fee 
by the cabin owner in accordance with subsection (a).
    (c) Payment of Greater Fee.--If, in accordance with section 607, the 
Secretary determines that the amount of a new base cabin user fee is 
greater than the amount of the current base cabin user fee, the 
Secretary shall--
            (1) require full payment of the new base cabin user fee in 
        the first year following completion of the fee determination 
        procedure if the increase in the amount of the new base cabin 
        user fee is not more than 100 percent of the current base cabin 
        user fee; or
            (2) phase in the increase over the current base cabin user 
        fee in approximately equal increments over 3 years if the 
        increase in the amount of the new base cabin user fee is more 
        than 100 percent of the current base cabin user fee.
