SEC. 102. CONVEYANCE OF NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM LANDS FOR EDUCATIONAL 
              PURPOSES.

    (a) Authority to Convey.--Upon written application, the Secretary 
of Agriculture may convey National Forest System lands to a public 
school district for use for educational purposes if the Secretary 
determines that--
            (1) the public school district seeking the conveyance will 
        use the conveyed land for a public or publicly funded 
        elementary or secondary school, to provide grounds or 
        facilities related to such a school, or for both purposes;
            (2) the conveyance will serve the public interest;
            (3) the land to be conveyed is not otherwise needed for the 
        purposes of the National Forest System;
            (4) the total acreage to be conveyed does not exceed the 
        amount reasonably necessary for the proposed use;
            (5) the land is to be used for an established or proposed 
        project that is described in detail in the application to the 
        Secretary, and the conveyance would serve public objectives 
        (either locally or at large) that outweigh the objectives and 
        values which would be served by maintaining such land in 
        Federal ownership;
            (6) the applicant is financially and otherwise capable of 
        implementing the proposed project;
            (7) the land to be conveyed has been identified for 
        disposal in an applicable land and resource management plan 
        under the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act 
        of 1974 (16 U.S.C. 1600 et seq.); and
            (8) An opportunity for public participation in a disposal 
        under this section has been provided, including at least one 
        public hearing or meeting, to provide for public comments.
    (b) Acreage Limitation.--A conveyance under this section may not 
exceed 80 acres. However, this limitation shall not be construed to 
preclude an entity from submitting a subsequent application under this 
section for an additional land conveyance if the entity can demonstrate 
to the Secretary a need for additional land.
    (c) Costs and Mineral Rights.--(1) A conveyance under this section 
shall be for a nominal cost. The conveyance may not include the 
transfer of mineral or water rights.
    (2) If necessary, the exact acreage and legal description of the 
real property conveyed under this title shall be determined by a survey 
satisfactory to the Secretary and the applicant. The cost of the survey 
shall be borne by the applicant.
    (d) Review of Applications.--When the Secretary receives an 
application under this section, the Secretary shall--
            (1) before the end of the 14-day period beginning on the 
        date of the receipt of the application, provide notice of that 
        receipt to the applicant; and
            (2) before the end of the 120-day period beginning on that 
        date--
                    (A) make a final determination whether or not to 
                convey land pursuant to the application, and notify the 
                applicant of that determination; or
                    (B) submit written notice to the applicant 
                containing the reasons why a final determination has 
                not been made.
    (e) Reversionary Interest.--If at any time after lands are conveyed 
pursuant to this section, the entity to whom the lands were conveyed 
attempts to transfer title to or control over the lands to another or 
the lands are devoted to a use other than the use for which the lands 
were conveyed, title to the lands shall revert to the United States.

             TITLE II--ALA KAHAKAI NATIONAL HISTORIC TRAIL

SEC. 201. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Ala Kahakai National Historic 
Trail Act''.

SEC. 202. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) the Ala Kahakai (Trail by the Sea) is an important part 
        of the ancient trail known as the ``Ala Loa'' (the long trail), 
        which circumscribes the island of Hawaii;
            (2) the Ala Loa was the major land route connecting 600 or 
        more communities of the island kingdom of Hawaii from 1400 to 
        1700;
            (3) the trail is associated with many prehistoric and 
        historic housing areas of the island of Hawaii, nearly all the 
        royal centers, and most of the major temples of the island;
            (4) the use of the Ala Loa is also associated with many 
        rulers of the kingdom of Hawaii, with battlefields and the 
        movement of armies during their reigns, and with annual 
        taxation;
            (5) the use of the trail played a significant part in 
        events that affected Hawaiian history and culture, including--
                    (A) Captain Cook's landing and subsequent death in 
                1779;
                    (B) Kamehameha I's rise to power and consolidation 
                of the Hawaiian Islands under monarchical rule; and
                    (C) the death of Kamehameha in 1819, followed by 
                the overthrow of the ancient religious system, the 
                Kapu, and the arrival of the first western missionaries 
                in 1820; and
            (6) the trail--
                    (A) was used throughout the 19th and 20th centuries 
                and continues in use today; and
                    (B) contains a variety of significant cultural and 
                natural resources.
