SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Hoover Dam Miscellaneous Sales

            (1) the sale and distribution of general public information 
        about the use of public land and water areas for recreation, 
        fish, wildlife, and other purposes serve significant public 
        benefits;
            (2) publications and other materials educate the public and 
        provide general information about Bureau of Reclamation 
        programs and projects;
            (3) in 1997, more than 1,000,000 visitors, including 
        300,000 from foreign countries, toured the Hoover Dam;
            (4) hundreds of thousands of additional visitors stopped to 
        view the dam;
            (5) visitors often ask to purchase maps, publications, and 
        other items to enhance their experience or serve educational 
        purposes;
            (6) in many cases the Bureau of Reclamation is the sole 
        source of those items;
            (7) the Bureau is in a unique position to fulfill public 
        requests for those items; and
            (8) as a public agency, the Bureau should be responsive to

        relating to construction of the Hoover Dam Visitor Center.

                    (A) materials generated by the Bureau of 
                Reclamation such as posters, maps, brochures, 
                photographs, and similar publications, videotapes, and 
                computer information discs that are related to programs
