    The Committee on Resources, to whom was referred the joint 
resolution (H.J. Res. 50) to designate the visitors center at 
the Channel Islands National Park, California, as the ``Robert 
J. Lagomarsino Visitors Center'', having considered the same, 
report favorably thereon with amendments and recommend that the 
joint resolution as amended do pass.
    The amendments are as follows:
    Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert in lieu 
thereof the following:

SECTION 1. DESIGNATION.

    The visitor center at the Channel Islands National Park, 
California, is designated as the ``Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitors 
Center''.

SEC. 2. LEGAL REFERENCES.

    Any reference in any law, regulation, document, record, map, or 
other paper of the United States to the visitor center referred to in 
section 1 is deemed to be a reference to the ``Robert J. Lagomarsino 
Visitors Center''.

    Amend the title so as to read:

    Joint resolution to designate the visitor center at the 
Channel Islands National Park, California, as the ``Robert J. 
Lagomarsino Visitors Center''.

                          purpose of the bill

    The purpose of H.J. Res. 50 is to name the Channel Islands 
National Park visitor center located at Ventura Harbor in honor 
of Robert J. Lagomarsino.

                          background and need

    Robert J. Lagomarsino served as Congressman for the 19th 
District of California from 1974 until 1992. As a long-standing 
Member of the Resources Committee, he authored a number of 
measures which provided for enhanced environmental protection 
in the south central coastal district which he represented. One 
of his major pieces of legislation provided for the 
establishment of the Channel Islands National Park in 1980. 
After the park was established, he continued to work to secure 
the necessary funding and support to make his vision for this 
area a reality. Due in large part to Congressman Lagomarsino's 
effort, the terrestrial and aquatic habitats of one of the most 
unique natural areas in this country will be preserved for 
future generations of Americans to enjoy.

                      section-by-section analysis

    Section 1 provides for the designation of the National Park 
Service visitor center for Channel Islands National Park, which 
is located at Ventura Harbor, to be named the Robert J. 
Lagomarsino Visitor Center.
    Section 2 specifies that any legal or other reference to 
the main visitor center at Channel Islands National Park shall 
be a reference to the Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitor Center.

            committee oversight findings and recommendations

    Pursuant to clause 2(l)(3) of rule XI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives and clause 2(b)(1) of rule X of the 
Rules of the House of Representatives, the Committee's 
oversight findings and recommendations are contained in the 
body of this report.

                     inflationary impact statement

    Pursuant to clause 2(l)(4) of rule XI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee estimates that the 
enactment of H.J. Res. 50 will have no significant inflationary 
impact on prices and costs in the operation of the national 
economy.

                        cost of the legislation

    Clause 7(a) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires an estimate and a comparison by the 
Committee of the costs which would be incurred in carrying out 
H.J. Res. 50. However, clause 7(d) of that Rule provides that 
this requirement does not apply when the Committee has included 
in its report a timely submitted cost estimate of the bill 
prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget Office 
under section 403 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.

rule XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives and 
section 308(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, H.J. 
Res. 50 does not contain any new budget authority, spending 
authority, credit authority, or an increase or decrease in 
revenues or tax expenditures.
    With respect to the requirement of clause 2(l)(3)(D) of 
rule XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives, the 
Committee has received no report on oversight findings and 
recommendations from the Committee on Government Reform and 
Oversight on the subject of H.J. Res. 50.
    With respect to the requirement of clause 2(l)(3)(C) of 
rule XI of the Rules of the House of Representatives and

50 from the Director of the Congressional Budget Office.

                  congressional budget office estimate

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                  Washington, DC, January 24, 1995.
Hon. Don Young,
Chairman, Committee on Resources, House of Representatives, Washington, 
        DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
reviewed H.J. Res. 50, a joint resolution to designate the 
visitors center at the Channel Islands National Park, 
California, as the ``Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitors Center,'' 
as ordered reported by the House Committee on Resources on 
January 18, 1995. We estimate that enactment of this 
legislation would have no impact on the federal budget. H.J. 
Res. 50 would not affect direct spending or receipts; 
therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures would not apply.
    Enactment of this legislation would have no impact on the 
budgets of state or local governments.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Deborah Reis.
            Sincerely,
                                    Robert D. Reischauer, Director.

                        changes in existing law

    If enacted, H.J. Res. 50 would make no changes in existing 
law.

                          departmental reports

    The Committee has received no departmental report on H.J. 
Res. 50.
