Proposed Supplementary Rule to Establish Application Fees for Commercial, Competitive, and Organized Group Activity and Event Special Recreation Permits
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) published in the Federal Register of September 11, 2007, a document concerning a proposal to establish supplementary rules addressing Special Recreation Permit (SRP) fees.
