                                 A BILL


 
 To authorize the Secretary of the Interior to construct an education 
 and administrative center at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in 
                        Box Elder County, Utah.

    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 ``Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge 
Visitor Center Act''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

     Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Bear River marshes have been a historical waterfowl 
        oasis and an important inland waterfowl flyway for thousands of 
        years.
            (2) Congress created the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge 
        as one of the first National Wildlife Refuges, for the purpose 
        of protecting waterfowl habitat and migratory birds, educating 
        the public regarding, and enhancing public appreciation of, 
        waterfowl habitat and migratory birds.
            (3) The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge was virtually 
        destroyed by the devastating floods that occurred between 1983 
        and 1985.
            (4) Refuge employees, aided by volunteers, have taken 
        valiant actions to rebuild the Refuge by restoring habitat, 
        increasing its attractiveness to waterfowl, reducing waterfowl 
        botulism, and providing recreational and educational 
        opportunities to the public.
            (5) The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge lacks a functional 
        education and administrative center.
            (6) The creation of such a facility would significantly 
        enhance public appreciation of waterfowl and the need to 
        preserve waterfowl habitat.
            (7) Congress has taken significant steps to provide funding 
        for the construction of an education and administrative center.
