    To amend the Wilderness Act to ensure that the use of bicycles, 
wheelchairs, strollers, and game carts is not prohibited in Wilderness 
                     Areas, and for other purposes.

adding at the end of subsection (d) the following:
            ``(8) Allowable uses.--Each agency administering any area 
        designated as wilderness may allow the use of motorized 
        wheelchairs, non-motorized wheelchairs, non-motorized adaptive 
        cycles, non-motorized bicycles, non-motorized strollers, non-
        motorized wheelbarrows, non-motorized survey wheels, non-
        motorized measuring wheels, or non-motorized game carts within

        mobility-impaired person for locomotion, that is suitable for 
        use in an indoor pedestrian area.''.
