Rehberg Works to Preserve Recreational Opportunities and Hunting Heritage on Public Lands

Congressman Denny Rehberg is co-sponsoring legislation to require federal land management agencies act to protect and support the long-standing recreational traditions of fishing, hunting, and shooting on federal public land.  The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage Opportunities Act affirms that America’s public lands be “open” to these sportsman activities, and ensures a transparent public process and better congressional oversight when federal agencies place restrictions on public lands.

The  proposed legislation  directs federal land management agencies, specifically the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to consider most public lands open to recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting unless there are established reasons for closure.  The bill also requires more public transparency when placing closures and restrictions, and requires the Forest Service and BLM to report to Congress on closures or significant restrictions on 640 or more cumulative acres of public land used for sportsman activities.
