                                 An Act


 
 To extend the authority of the Los Angeles Unified School District to 
use certain park lands in the City of South Gate, California, which were 
  acquired with amounts provided from the land and water conservation 
                  fund, for elementary school purposes.

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

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
        (1) In 1988, the Los Angeles Board of Education voted to close 
    Tweedy Elementary School in the City of South Gate, California, due 
    to concerns about health risks at the site of the school.
        (2) The school was temporarily relocated to South Gate Park on 
    park land that was originally acquired with amounts provided by the 
    Secretary of the Interior from the land and water conservation 
    fund.
        (3) In March 1991, the lease with the city that allowed the Los 
    Angeles Unified School District to operate the school on park land 
    expired, and no progress had been made in constructing new 
    facilities to relocate the school and its students.
        (4) In 1992, Congress enacted Public Law 102-443 (106 Stat. 
    2244), which authorized an 8-year extension in the lease for the 
    use of the park land pending the construction of the new school.
        (5) This 8-year extension is due to expire on October 23, 2000, 
    and little progress has been made on the part of the Los Angeles 
    Unified School District to relocate Tweedy Elementary School.
        (6) In addition to the long-delayed Tweedy Elementary School 
    relocation, recent studies have identified the need for additional 
    educational facilities in the City of South Gate, including a new 
    high school, junior high, and three primary centers in the near 
    future.
        (7) The lack of commitment, oversight, and accountability in 
    finding a new site for Tweedy Elementary School must be corrected 
    in any further lease extension, and a similar situation also must 
    be avoided in addressing the construction of other education 
    facilities in the City of South Gate.

SEC. 2. CONTINUATION OF TEMPORARY USE OF PARK LANDS FOR ELEMENTARY 
              SCHOOL PURPOSES, SOUTH GATE, CALIFORNIA.

    Notwithstanding section 6(f)(3) of the Land and Water Conservation 
Fund Act of 1965 (16 U.S.C. 460l-8(f)(3)), the City of South Gate, 
California, may extend until October 23, 2004, the lease between the 
City of South Gate and the Los Angeles Unified School District, dated 
June 8, 1988, and otherwise subject to expire on October 23, 2000, 
pursuant to Public Law 102-443 (106 Stat. 2244), regarding the use of 
approximately three acres of South Gate Park as the temporary site for 
Tweedy Elementary School.

SEC. 3. REPORT ON PROGRESS TO RELOCATE TWEEDY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND 
              OTHER SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION.

    (a) Periodic Reports Required.--As a condition on the extension of 
the lease referred to in section 1 beyond October 23, 2000, the 
President of the Board of Education for the Los Angeles Unified School 
District shall require the preparation of periodic reports describing--
        (1) the progress being made to relocate Tweedy Elementary 
    School from South Gate Park to a permanent location; and
        (2) the School District's construction plans for a new high 
    school, middle school, and three primary centers in the City of 
    South Gate, California.
    (b) Elements of Report.--Each report under subsection (a) shall 
describe--
        (1) the progress being made in site selection and acquisition, 
    facility design, and construction; and
        (2) any factors hindering either the relocation of Tweedy 
    Elementary School or progress on the School District's other 
    construction plans for the City of South Gate.
    (c) Submission.--The reports required by subsection (a) shall be 
submitted to the City Manager of the City of South Gate, the Congress, 
the Los Angeles Board of Education, and Padres Unidos Pro Nuevas 
Escuelas. The first report shall be submitted not later than May 1, 
2001, and subsequent reports shall be submitted every 6 months 
thereafter during the term of the extended lease.

                               Speaker of the House of Representatives.

                            Vice President of the United States and    
                                               President of the Senate.
