areas are established under their respective jurisdictions. In 
accordance with the BLM recreation fee program policy, the Butte Field 
Office Recreational Fee Business Plan explains the fee collection 
process, and outlines how the fees will be used at the White Sandy 
Recreation Site. BLM has notified and involved the public at each stage
