whether sea gull eggs can be collected on a limited basis without 
impairing the biological sustainability of the sea gull population in 
the park. The study shall be completed no later than two years after 
the date funds are made available.
    (b) Recommendations.--If the study referred to in subsection (a) 
determines that the limited collection of sea gull eggs can occur

legislation to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the
