Congressman Doug LaMalfa of California has introduced H.R. 5129, which is long overdue legislation to streamline and reduce the cost of obtaining special recreation permits for use on both BLM and Forest Service lands. For the last several years, the special use permit process has significantly increased the cost to put on OHV events on public lands to the extent that some events were canceled. The time it currently takes to obtain the special use permits has also increased in many cases. This legislation addresses both of these issues.
Please contact your US Congressman and Senators and ask for their support of H.R.5129.

I would also like to thank the BRC for bringing this to the publics attention.
