    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the industrial and cultural heritage of northeastern 
        Pennsylvania, including Lackawanna County, Luzerne County, Wayne 
        County, and Susquehanna County, related directly to anthracite 
        and anthracite-related industries, is nationally significant;
            (2) the industries referred to in paragraph (1) include 
        anthracite mining, ironmaking, textiles, and rail 
        transportation;
            (3) the industrial and cultural heritage of the anthracite 
        and anthracite-related industries in the region described in 
        paragraph (1) includes the social history and living cultural 
        traditions of the people of the region;
            (4) the labor movement of the region played a significant 
        role in the development of the Nation, including--
                    (A) the formation of many major unions such as the 
                United Mine Workers of America; and
                    (B) crucial struggles to improve wages and working 
                conditions, such as the 1900 and 1902 anthracite 
                strikes;
            (5)(A) the Secretary of the Interior is responsible for 
        protecting the historical and cultural resources of the United 
        States; and
            (B) there are significant examples of those resources within 
        the region described in paragraph (1) that merit the involvement 
        of the Federal Government to develop, in cooperation with the 
        Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority, the Commonwealth of 
        Pennsylvania, and local and governmental entities, programs and 
        projects to conserve, protect, and interpret this heritage 
        adequately for future generations, while providing opportunities 
        for education and revitalization; and

[[Page 114 STAT. 815]]

            (6) the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority would be an 
        appropriate management entity for a Heritage Area established in 
        the region described in paragraph (1).

    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of the Lackawanna Valley National 
Heritage Area are--
            (1) to foster a close working relationship among all levels 
        of government, the private sector, and the local communities in 
        the anthracite coal region of northeastern Pennsylvania and 
        enable the communities to conserve their heritage while 
        continuing to pursue economic opportunities; and
            (2) to conserve, interpret, and develop the historical, 
        cultural, natural, and recreational resources related to the
