SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (REA; Pub. L. 108-447), enacted on December 8, 2004, directs the Secretaries of the Interior or Agriculture, or both, to establish Recreation Resource Advisory Committees to provide advice and recommendations on recreation fees and fee areas in each State or region for Federal recreational lands and waters managed by the Bureau of Land Management or Forest Service. The law allows the agencies to use existing RACs or to establish new Recreation RACs. For the state of Nevada, a recreation subcommittee, of the three existing RACs, has been designated to perform Recreation Resource Advisory Committees responsibilities pertaining to both BLM and Forest Service managed Federal lands and waters per the national interagency agreement between the Forest Service and BLM. This subcommittee will recommend new amenity fees and fee change proposals to the respective RAC(s) for that geographic region.
