In December 2004, FLREA was signed into law. FLREA provides authority for the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture to establish, modify, charge, and collect recreation fees for use of some Federal recreation lands and waters, and contains specific provisions addressing public involvement in the establishment of recreation fees, including a requirement that a Recreation RAC have the opportunity to make recommendations regarding establishment of such fees. FLREA also directed the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture to publish six months’ advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fee areas are established under their respective jurisdictions. In an effort to meet increasing demands for services and increased maintenance costs, the BLM Utah has developed recreation fee business plans. The plans cover campgrounds, rental cabins, and day use areas within the Moab, Monticello, Cedar City, and Vernal Field Offices. The plans will implement new Standard and Expanded Amenity Recreation Fees for developed campgrounds, group use, rental cabins, and day use fees at the sites as indicated above. In response to increasing visitation on BLM-administered lands in Utah, the new recreation fees will be used to replace aging infrastructure at campgrounds and day use sites, to increase visitor services, and to improve access to recreational opportunities across the state. As analyzed in the Field Offices business plans, the campsite, group use, rental cabins, and day use fees are consistent with other established fee sites in the regions including other BLM administered sites and those managed by the United States Department of Agriculture—Forest Service, United Stated Department of the Interior— National Park Service, and Utah State Parks and Recreation. In accordance with the BLM recreation fee program policy, the business plans explain agency management direction, the need for fee collection, and how the fees will be used at the sites. The BLM notified and involved the public at each stage of the planning process. A 30-day public comment period on the draft E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1
