Background:

The focus of this hearing is to examine obstacles put in place by the federal government that put more costs and burdens on small businesses and limit public access to public lands. Subcommittee Members will hear testimony from stakeholders who have firsthand experience in how the federal government’s restrictive policies are not only standing in the way of recreation, but hurting job creation and economic growth. In many Western states, the federal government owns a majority of the land, and the ability to protect public access is crucial to their economic livelihoods.
