SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; TABLE OF CONTENTS.

    (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Santa Rosa and San 
Jacinto Mountains National Monument Act of 2000''.
    (b) Table of Contents.--The table of contents of this Act is as 
follows:

Sec. 1. Short title; table of contents.

           Monument, California.

SEC. 2. ESTABLISHMENT OF SANTA ROSA AND SAN JACINTO MOUNTAINS NATIONAL 
            MONUMENT, CALIFORNIA.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains in southern 
        California contain nationally significant biological, cultural, 
        recreational, geological, educational, and scientific values.
            (2) The magnificent vistas, wildlife, land forms, and 
        natural and cultural resources of these mountains occupy a 
        unique and challenging position given their proximity to highly 
        urbanized areas of the Coachella Valley.
            (3) These mountains, which rise abruptly from the desert 
        floor to an elevation of 10,802 feet, provide a picturesque 
        backdrop for Coachella Valley communities and support an 
        abundance of recreational opportunities that are an important 
        regional economic resource.
            (4) These mountains have special cultural value to the Agua 
        Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, containing significant 
        cultural sites, including village sites, trails, petroglyphs, 
        and other evidence of their habitation.
            (5) The designation of a Santa Rosa and San Jacinto 
        Mountains National Monument by this Act is not intended to 
        impact upon existing or future growth in the Coachella Valley.
            (6) Because the areas immediately surrounding the new 
        National Monument are densely populated and urbanized, it is 
        anticipated that certain activities or uses on private lands 
        outside of the National Monument may have some impact upon

[[Page 114 STAT. 1363]]

        the National Monument, and Congress does not intend, directly or 
        indirectly, that additional regulations be imposed on such uses 
        or activities as long as they are consistent with other 
        applicable law.
            (7) The Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service 
        should work cooperatively in the management of the National 
        Monument.

    (b) Establishment and Purposes.--In order to preserve the nationally 
significant biological, cultural, recreational, geological, educational, 
and scientific values found in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains 
and to secure now and for future generations the opportunity to 
experience and enjoy the magnificent vistas, wildlife, land forms, and 
natural and cultural resources in these mountains and to recreate 
therein, there is hereby designated the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto 
Mountains National Monument (in this Act referred to as the ``National 
Monument'').
    (c) Boundaries.--The National Monument shall consist of Federal 
lands and Federal interests in lands located within the boundaries 
depicted on a series of 24 maps entitled ``Boundary Map, Santa Rosa and 
San Jacinto National Monument'', 23 of which are dated May 6, 2000, and 
depict separate townships and one of which is dated June 22, 2000, and 
depicts the overall boundaries.
    (d) Legal Descriptions; Correction of Errors.--
            (1) Preparation and submission.--As soon as practicable 
        after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of 
        the Interior shall use the map referred to in subsection (c) to 
        prepare legal descriptions of the boundaries of the National 
        Monument. The Secretary shall submit the resulting legal 
        descriptions to the Committee on Resources and the Committee on 
        Agriculture of the House of Representatives and to the Committee 
        on Energy and Natural Resources and the Committee on 
        Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate.
            (2) Legal effect.--The map and legal descriptions of the 
        National Monument shall have the same force and effect as if 
        included in this Act, except that the Secretary of the Interior 
        may correct clerical and typographical errors in the map and 
        legal descriptions. <<NOTE: Public inspection.>>  The map shall 
        be on file and available for public inspection in appropriate 
        offices of the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service.

SEC. 3. MANAGEMENT OF FEDERAL LANDS IN THE NATIONAL MONUMENT.

    (a) Basis of Management.--The Secretary of the Interior and the 
Secretary of Agriculture shall manage the National Monument to protect 
the resources of the National Monument, and shall allow only those uses 
of the National Monument that further the purposes for the establishment 
of the National Monument, in accordance with--
            (1) this Act;
            (2) the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 
        U.S.C. 1701 et seq.);
            (3) the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning 
        Act of 1974 (16 U.S.C. 1600 et seq.) and section 14 of the 
        National Forest Management Act of 1976 (16 U.S.C. 472a); and
            (4) other applicable provisions of law.

[[Page 114 STAT. 1364]]

    (b) Administration of Subsequently Acquired Lands.--Lands or 
interests in lands within the boundaries of the National Monument that 
are acquired by the Bureau of Land Management after the date of the 
enactment of this Act shall be managed by the Secretary of the Interior. 
Lands or interests in lands within the boundaries of the National 
Monument that are acquired by the Forest Service after the date of the 
enactment of this Act shall be managed by the Secretary of Agriculture.
    (c) Protection of Reservation, State, and Private Lands and 
Interests.--Nothing in the establishment of the National Monument shall 
affect any property rights of any Indian reservation, any individually 
held trust lands, any other Indian allotments, any lands or interests in 
lands held by the State of California, any political subdivision of the 
State of California, any special district, or the Mount San Jacinto 
Winter Park Authority, or any private property rights within the 
boundaries of the National Monument. Establishment of the National 
Monument shall not grant the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary 
of Agriculture any new authority on or over non-Federal lands not 
already provided by law. The authority of the Secretary of the Interior 
and the Secretary of Agriculture under this Act extends only to Federal 
lands and Federal interests in lands included in the National Monument.
    (d) Existing Rights.--The management of the National Monument shall 
be subject to valid existing rights.
    (e) No Buffer Zones Around National Monument.--Because the National 
Monument is established in a highly urbanized area--
            (1) the establishment of the National Monument shall not 
        lead to the creation of express or implied protective perimeters 
        or buffer zones around the National Monument;
            (2) an activity on, or use of, private lands up to the 
        boundaries of the National Monument shall not be precluded 
        because of the monument designation, if the activity or use is 
        consistent with other applicable law; and
            (3) an activity on, or use of, private lands, if the 
        activity or use is consistent with other applicable law, shall 
        not be directly or indirectly subject to additional regulation 
        because of the designation of the National Monument.

    (f ) Air and Water Quality.--Nothing in this Act shall be construed 
to change standards governing air or water quality outside of the 
designated area of the National Monument.

        National Monument consistent with the requirements of section 
        3(a). The Secretaries shall submit the management plan to 
        Congress before it is made public.
            (2) Management pending completion.--Pending completion of 
        the management plan for the National Monument, the Secretaries 
        shall manage Federal lands and interests in lands within the

        occurring on such lands and under the general guidelines and 
        authorities of the existing management plans

[[Page 114 STAT. 1365]]

        lands, in a manner consistent with other applicable Federal law.

        subsection shall preclude the Secretaries, during the 
        preparation of the management plan, from implementing

    (b) Consultation and Cooperation.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretaries shall prepare and implement

        plan.
            (3) Winter park authority.--The management plan shall 
        consider the mission of the Mount San Jacinto Winter Park

        the natural and recreational treasures of the Mount San Jacinto

        National Monument, the Secretaries shall, consistent with the
