The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
2/15/2007--Reported to Senate without amendment.
(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced.
The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.) Natural Resource Protection Cooperative Agreement Act - Authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to enter into cooperative agreements with State, local, or tribal governments, other federal agencies, other public entities, educational institutions, private nonprofit organizations, or willing private landowners to protect natural resources of units of the National Park System (NPS) through collaborative efforts on land inside and outside of NPS units.
Sets forth the terms and conditions that such an agreement shall contain, including that the agreement provide for:
(1) clear and direct benefits to natural resources in units of the NPS;
(2) the preservation, conservation, and restoration of coastal and riparian systems, watersheds, and wetlands;
(3) preventing, controlling, or eradicating invasive exotic species that occupy land within a unit of the NPS or adjacent to such a unit; or
(4) restoration of natural resources, including native wildlife habitat.
Prohibits the Secretary from using any amounts associated with an agreement entered into under the Act for the purposes of land acquisition, regulatory activity, or the development, maintenance, or operation of infrastructure, with the exception of ancillary support facilities that the Secretary determines to be necessary for the completion of projects or activities identified in the agreement.
House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
