 To provide for certain benefits of the Pick-Sloan Missouri River basin 
     program to the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, and for other purposes.

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

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Crow Creek Sioux Tribe 
Infrastructure Development Trust Fund Act of 1996''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the Congress approved the Pick-Sloan Missouri River 
        basin program by passing the Act of December 22, 1944, commonly 
        known as the ``Flood Control Act of 1944'' (58 Stat. 887, 
        chapter 665; 33 U.S.C. 701-1 et seq.)--
                    (A) to promote the general economic development of 
                the United States;
                    (B) to provide for irrigation above Sioux City, 
                Iowa;
                    (C) to protect urban and rural areas from 
                devastating floods of the Missouri River; and
                    (D) for other purposes;
            (2) the Fort Randall and Big Bend projects are major 
        components of the Pick-Sloan program, and contribute to the 
        national economy by generating a substantial amount of 
        hydropower and impounding a substantial quantity of water;
            (3) the Fort Randall and Big Bend projects overlie the 
        western boundary of the Crow Creek Indian Reservation, having 
        inundated the fertile, wooded bottom lands of the Tribe along 
        the Missouri River that constituted the most productive 
        agricultural and pastoral lands of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe 
        and the homeland of the members of the Tribe;
            (4) Public Law 85-916 (72 Stat. 1766 et seq.) authorized 
        the acquisition of 9,418 acres of Indian land on the Crow Creek 
        Indian Reservation for the Fort Randall project and Public Law 
        87-735 (76 Stat. 704 et seq.) authorized the acquisition of 
        6,179 acres of Indian land on Crow Creek for the Big Bend 
        project;
            (5) Public Law 87-735 (76 Stat. 704 et seq.) provided for 
        the mitigation of the effects of the Fort Randall and Big Bend 
        projects on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation, by directing the 
        Secretary of the Army to--
                    (A) replace, relocate, or reconstruct--
                            (i) any existing essential governmental and 
                        agency facilities on the reservation, including 
                        schools, hospitals, offices of the Public 
                        Health Service and the Bureau of Indian 
                        Affairs, service buildings, and employee 
                        quarters; and
                            (ii) roads, bridges, and incidental matters 
                        or facilities in connection with such 
                        facilities;
                    (B) provide for a townsite adequate for 50 homes, 
                including streets and utilities (including water, 
                sewage, and electricity), taking into account the 
                reasonable future growth of the townsite; and
                    (C) provide for a community center containing space 
                and facilities for community gatherings, tribal 
                offices, tribal council chamber, offices of the Bureau 
                of Indian Affairs, offices and quarters of the Public 
                Health Service, and a combination gymnasium and 
                auditorium;
            (6) the requirements under Public Law 87-735 (76 Stat. 704 
        et seq.) with respect to the mitigation of the effects of the 
        Fort Randall and Big Bend projects on the Crow Creek Indian 
        Reservation have not been fulfilled;
            (7) although the national economy has benefited from the 
        Fort Randall and Big Bend projects, the economy on the Crow 
        Creek Indian Reservation remains underdeveloped, in part as a 
        consequence of the failure of the Federal Government to fulfill 
        the obligations of the Federal Government under the laws 
        referred to in paragraph (4);
            (8) the economic and social development and cultural 
        preservation of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe will be enhanced by 
        increased tribal participation in the benefits of the Fort 
        Randall and Big Bend components of the Pick-Sloan program; and
            (9) the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe is entitled to additional 
        benefits of the Pick-Sloan Missouri River basin program.
