Who is the ARC and what are they doing to your public land?
The Fee Demostration
Program is being run by
the Forest Service,BLM
and Army Corp. They are
running a pilot program to
test the American puplic's
complience to the idea of
user fees on public land.
In 1996 congress passed a rider on a
appropriations bill which allows the Forest
Service.BLm and Army corps. of engineers to
charge user fees to recreate on public lands.
Written into the bill is the concept of a joint
effort by the Forest Service and corperations
to begin managing sites and facilities and
charging the public "fair market value"
to recreate on public land. This was lobbied
by a group called ARC (American Recreation
Colalition) some of the members include
What we have here is double taxation,your
taxes already support the National Forest
Service. And most importantly this is the
beginning of a corperate take over of public
lands. Somethig needs to be done!!!
Several organistations are currentely
contesting this program but more public
outcry needs to be heard!
Check out these web sites:
www.wildwilderness.org and www.
freeourforest.org. A national day of protest
has been set for June 10th let us all get
active or the corperations will be running
OUR public lands.
