                                 A BILL


 
To amend the Act entitled ``An Act to provide for the establishment of 
 Fort Clatsop National Memorial in the State of Oregon, 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 ``Fort Clatsop National Memorial 
Expansion Act of 2000''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) In 1805, the members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition 
        built Fort Clatsop at the mouth of the Columbia River near 
        Astoria, Oregon, where they spent 106 days waiting for the end 
        of winter and preparing for their journey home. The Fort 
        Clatsop National Memorial was created by Congress in 1958 for 
        the purpose of commemorating the culmination, and the winter 
        encampment, of the Lewis and Clark Expedition following its 
        successful crossing of the North American continent, and is the 
        only National Park Service site solely dedicated to the Lewis 
        and Clark Expedition.
            (2) The 1995 General Management Plan for the Fort Clatsop 
        National Memorial, prepared with input from the local 
        community, calls for the addition of lands to the memorial to 
        include the trail used by expedition members to travel from the 
        fort to the Pacific Ocean and to include the shore and forest 
        lands surrounding the fort and trail to protect their natural 
        settings.
            (3) The area near present day McGowan, Washington where 
        Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery camped after 
        reaching the Pacific Ocean, performed detailed surveying, and 
        conducted the historic ``vote'' to determine where to spend the 
        winter, is of undisputed national significance.
            (4) The National Park Service and State of Washington 
        should identify the best alternative for adequately and cost 
        effectively protecting and interpreting the ``Station Camp'' 
        site.
            (5) Expansion of the Fort Clatsop National Memorial would 
        require Federal legislation because the size of the memorial is 
        currently limited by statute to 130 acres.
            (6) Congressional action to allow for the expansion of Fort 
        Clatsop for both the trail to the Pacific and, possibly, the 
        Station Camp site would be both timely and appropriate before 
        the start of the national bicentennial celebration of the Lewis 
        and Clark Expedition planned to take place during the years 
        2004 through 2006.

SEC. 3. ACQUISITION OF LANDS FOR FORT CLATSOP NATIONAL MEMORIAL.

    The Act entitled ``An Act to provide for the establishment of Fort 
Clatsop National Memorial in the State of Oregon, and for other 
purposes.'', approved May 29, 1958 (Chapter 158; 72 Stat. 153), is 
amended--
            (1) by inserting in section 2 ``(a)'' before ``The 
        Secretary'';
            (2) by inserting in section 2 a period, ``.'', following 
        ``coast'' and by striking the remainder of the section;
            (3) by inserting in section 2 the following new 
        subsections:
    ``(b) The Memorial shall also include the lands depicted on the map 
entitled `Fort Clatsop Boundary Map', numbered and dated `405-80016-
CCO-June-1996'. The area designated in the map as a `buffer zone' shall 
not be developed but shall be managed as a visual buffer between a 
commemorative trail that will run through the property, and contiguous 
private land holdings.
    ``(c) The total area designated as the Memorial shall contain no 
more than 1,500 acres.''; and
            (4) by inserting at the end of section 3 the following:
    ``(b) Such lands included within the newly expanded boundary may be 
acquired from willing sellers only, with the exception of corporately 
owned timberlands.''.

SEC. 4. AUTHORIZATION OF STUDY OF STATION CAMP.

    The Secretary of the Interior shall conduct a study of the area 
known as ``Station Camp'' near McGowan, Washington, to determine its 
suitability, feasibility, and national significance, for inclusion into 
the National Park System. The study shall be conducted in accordance 
with section 8 of Public Law 91-383 (16 U.S.C. 1a-5).
