How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The responsibility of this committee is to provide recommendations to the Forest Service and BLM consistent with the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act of 2004. Specifically, this committee provides recommendations on matters including, but not limited to: the implementation of a standard amenity recreation fee or an expanded amenity recreation fee or the establishment of a specific recreation fee site; the elimination of a standard amenity recreation fee or an expanded amenity recreation fee; the expansion or limitation of the recreation fee program; the implementation or elimination of noncommercial, individual special recreation permit fees; and the implementation of fee-level changes (increases or decreases).
How is membership balanced?*Membership shall be balanced and have broad representation from within each of the three membership groups. These groups include persons who represent: summer motorized recreation; winter motorized recreation; summer non-motorized recreation; winter non-motorized recreation; hunting and fishing; motorized outfitters and guides; non-motorized outfitters and guides; local environmental groups; a state tourism official; representative of affected Indian tribes; and representative of affected local governments.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated number of meetings per year: 2. Each meeting is relevant in that they both broaden our collaborative relationships and they enable the Recreation RAC to provide recommendations on fee proposals.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*FACA chartered Recreation RACs are required by FLREA; however, the law also allows other options for either using a Recreation RAC or receiving an exception from that requirement. The Pacific Northwest Region is currently using Secure Rural Schools and Bureau of Land Management RACs to meet the requirements of the law and will not be re-forming a Recreation RAC.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public.
