to in subsection (a) at per student levels that are no less than the 
amount provided in fiscal year 2005.

        schools elsewhere in the State of California.

    (d) Source of Payments.--(1) Except as otherwise provided in this 
subsection, the Secretary may use funds available to the National Park 
Service from appropriations, donations, or fees.
    (2) Funds from the following sources shall not be used to make 
payments under this section:
            (A) Any law authorizing the collection or expenditure of 
        entrance or use fees at units of the National Park System, 
        including--
                    (i) the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965 
                (16 U.S.C. 460l-4 et seq.); and
                    (ii) the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act 
                (16 U.S.C. 6801 et seq.).
            (B) Any unexpended receipts collected through--
                    (i) the recreational fee demonstration program

                Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1996 
                (16 U.S.C. 460l-6a note; Public Law 104-134); or
                    (ii) the national park passport program established

            (C) Emergency appropriations for flood recovery at Yosemite 
        National Park.

    (3)(A) The Secretary may use an authorized funding source to make 
payments under this section only if the funding available to Yosemite 
National Park from such source (after subtracting any payments to the 
school districts authorized under this section) is greater than or equal 
to the amount made available to the park for the prior fiscal year, or 
in fiscal year 2005, whichever is greater.
    (B) It is the sense of Congress that any payments made under this 
section should not result in a reduction of funds to Yosemite National 
Park from any specific funding source, and that with respect to 
appropriated funds, funding levels should reflect annual increases in 
the park's operating base funds that are generally made to units of the 
National Park System.
