        in township 8 south, range 26 east, section 29, N\1/2\NW\1/4\, 
        Mt. Diablo Meridian, California.
    (b) Exchange Authorized.--
            (1) In general.--If, during the one-year period beginning 
        on the date of enactment of this Act, the owner of the non-
        Federal land offers the United States the exchange of the non-
        Federal land, together with a cash equalization payment in 
        accordance with this section, the Secretary shall convey by 
        quit claim deed all right, title, and interest of the United 
        States in and to the Federal land. The conveyance of the 
        Federal land shall be subject to valid existing rights and 
        under such terms and conditions as the Secretary may prescribe.
            (2) Acceptable title.--Title to the non-Federal land shall 
        conform with the title approval standards of the Attorney

        Secretary, in consultation with the owner of the non-Federal

        Federal land and non-Federal land. The Secretary and the owner 
        of the non-Federal land may make minor modifications to such

Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1716(b)), the 
Secretary may accept a cash equalization payment in excess of 25 
percent of the value of the Federal land.
    (e) Administration of Land Acquired by United States.--Once 
acquired, the Secretary shall manage the non-Federal land in accordance 
with the Act of March 1, 1911 (commonly known as the Weeks Act; 16 
U.S.C. 480 et seq.), and in accordance with the other laws and 
regulations pertaining to National Forest System lands.
    (f) Reconveyance.--The conveyance under subsection (b) shall be

to convey the land, within a time period agreed to by the Secretary and 
the recipient, to the Sequoia Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
    (g) Disposition and Use of Cash Equalization Funds.--The Secretary 
shall deposit any cash equalization payment received under this section 
in the fund established by Public Law 90-171 (commonly known as the 
Sisk Act; 16 U.S.C. 484a). Funds so deposited shall be available to the 
Secretary until expended, without further appropriation, for the 
acquisition of lands and interests in lands for the National Forest 
System in the State of California.
    (h) Cost Collection Funds.--The owner of the non-Federal land shall 
be responsible for all direct costs associated with processing the land 
exchange under this section and shall pay the Secretary the necessary 
funds, which shall be deposited in a cost collection account. Funds so 
deposited shall be available to the Secretary until expended, without 
further appropriation, for the cost associated with the land exchange. 
Any funds remaining after completion of the land exchange, which are 
not needed to cover expenses, shall be refunded to the owner of the 
non-Federal land.
