ACTION: Adjustment of Special Recreation Permit fees and revision of supplementary rules for Long-Term Visitor Areas managed by the California Desert District, California, and the Colorado River District, Arizona. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Yuma, Palm Springs-South Coast, and El Centro Field Offices are: (1) Adjusting the Special Recreation Permit (SRP) fees for recreational use of Long-Term Visitor Areas (LTVA), and (2) amending the supplementary rules applying to the LTVA Program. The BLM State Directors are authorized to adjust SRP fees for recreational use of special areas, as they find it necessary (43 CFR 2932.31(d)). The amendment of the supplementary rules is only a technical change that eliminates the need to reprint the Supplementary Rule pamphlet after every change in the LTVA fee schedule. The amendment is not a substantive change in the visitor rules of conduct for the LTVAs. DATES: Effective date: September 25, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion of the LTVA Program The BLM’s LTVA program was established in 1983 to meet the longterm camping needs of winter visitors staying on the public lands. The LTVAs have been designated as ‘‘special areas’’ where it has been determined that the resources require special management and control measures for their protection, and where a permit system for individual use would achieve management objectives. All of the LTVAs have been designated as special areas in compliance with the BLM’s land use planning process, outlined in 43 CFR part 1600 et seq. The designation of LTVAs ensures that suitable locations are available for longterm use year after year and that areas with sensitive natural and cultural resources are not used for extended periods of time. The requirements for special areas can be found in 43 CFR part 2932 et seq. The BLM manages seven LTVAs. The Yuma Field Office manages the La Posa and Imperial Dam LTVAs; the El Centro Field Office manages the Tamarisk, Pilot Knob, and Hot Spring LTVAs; and the Palm Springs/South Coast Field Office manages the Mule Mountain and Midland LTVAs. The LTVAs are located in La Paz County, Arizona, and Imperial and Riverside Counties, California. II. Discussion of Special Recreation Permit Fees Visitors must purchase a long-term or short-visit SRP for recreational use of the LTVAs. An SRP for use of the LTVAs is valid at all seven LTVAs for the duration of the permit’s validity. Except for areas closed to camping and other designated recreation fee sites, visitors may stay free of charge on public lands outside of LTVAs for up to 14 days in any 28-day period. The BLM has periodically adjusted SRP fees for use of the LTVAs since the LTVA program began to cover rising labor, administrative, and supply costs. The LTVA SRP fees were last adjusted in 2003. The following LTVA fee adjustments will be implemented on September 25, 2007: Increase the longterm (7-month) permit fee from $140 to $180, and increase the short-visit (14day) permit fee from $30 to $40.
