 To provide for the revision of the requirements for a Canadian border 
  boat landing permit pursuant to section 235 of the Immigration and 
 Nationality Act, and to require the Attorney General to report to the 
                Congress on the impact on such revision.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. CHANGE IN CANADIAN BORDER BOAT LANDING PERMIT REQUIREMENTS.

    (a) Revised Regulations.--Not later than 60 days after the date of 
the enactment of this Act, the Attorney General, in consultation with 
the Commissioner of Immigration and Naturalization, shall issue revised 
regulations for the implementation of section 235 of the Immigration 
and Nationality Act with respect to the requirement that certain 
individuals entering the United States from Canada by boat obtain a 
landing permit. The revised regulations shall provide that, in the case 
of a United States citizen traveling in a boat of not more than 65 feet 
in length (including a boat used for commercial purposes) on a trip 
between the United States and Canada of not more than 72 hours 
duration, the citizen need not obtain such a permit if--
            (1) the citizen carries a United States passport for the 
        duration of the trip; and
            (2) the citizen is not an owner, or an operator, of the 
        boat.
    (b) Sunset.--The revised regulations issued under subsection (a) 
shall cease to be effective on December 31, 1998. After such date, the 
regulations that were in effect on the day before the enactment of this 
Act with respect to the requirement that certain individuals entering 
the United States from Canada by boat obtain a landing permit shall 
resume to be effective, in the same manner and to the same extent as if 
this Act had not been enacted.
    (c) Report.--Not later than March 1, 1999, the Attorney General 
shall report to the Congress on the impact of the revised regulations 
issued under subsection (a) on the number and nature of unauthorized 
entrances by individuals into the United States.

            Passed the House of Representatives September 23, 1997.
