                    The Committee on Natural Resources, to whom was referred the

                  ard Marine Sciences Laboratory at Gateway National Recreation
                  Area by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,
                  having considered the same, report favorably thereon without
                  amendment and recommend that the bill do pass.
                                       PURPOSE OF THE BILL
                    The purpose of H.R. 6434 is to amend section 7 of Public Law
                  100-515 (16 U.S.C. 1244 note) to promote continued use of the
                  James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory at Gateway National
                  Recreation Area by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin-
                  istration.
                              BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                    Currently, the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory,
                  owned by the State of New Jersey, is operated by the National Oce-
                  anic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and sits on National
                  Park Service (NPS) land that is leased by the State. H.R. 6434
                  would transfer NPS's ground lease with the State to NOAA so that
                  the agency may continue to operate the lab and make improve-
                  ments.
                    The Gateway National Recreation Area is a unique asset of NPS
                  that encompasses roughly 27,000 non-contiguous acres of land
                     89-006
