This document corrects the regulatory text of a proposed rule published in the Federal Register of November 22, 2005, regarding permits for recreation on public lands. First, it corrects two prohibited acts provisions to make it clear that persons who fail to pay a permit fee will incur a maximum penalty of $100, as provided in the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (the Act), but that those who fail to obtain a permit will be subject to the higher penalties of the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act and other laws, as provided by the Act. Second, it corrects a penalty provision to be consistent with the correction in the prohibited acts provisions. Also, the document extends the comment period in light of the substantive nature of the corrections.
