Nov 08, 2017 PDF Document Report to the Bureau of Land Management Regulatory Reform Task Force Executive Order 13777 - Bureau of Land Management
Outdoor recreation and access to public lands are tremendously important to connect Americans to the wonders of the natural world. Outfitted services provide access to active travel and to places in the backcountry which the general public would be unable to visit without those services. Outfitting contributes to the vitality of many rural economies. Thousands of family-run businesses and their employees in rural communities are dependent upon land-managing agency permits to access public lands. Approximately 17,000 authorizations are issued by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agencies for outfitting, guiding, special events, and competitions. Unfortunately, the crush of regulatory processes from various federal agencies is threatening the survival of many of these recreation businesses. Some of those challenges are outlined in this report. While this report covers some of the regulations or policies that we would like to see changed, we would like to note that we understand the important role the agencies play in the management of public lands and applaud their efforts to authorize services to the general public. By focusing on the problem areas, we do not want this paper to be interpreted as condemning their role in land management.
