Background:

The Subcommittee will hear testimony from citizens and federal agencies regarding the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA). The act authorizes the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Reclamation to charge and collect fees at federal recreation lands and waters. FLREA seeks to standardize the types of recreation fees across agencies, differentiate among different types of fees, and minimize the situations where multiple fees can be charged. The agencies can spend the revenue without further appropriation for specific purposes, with most of the money retained at the collection site. The authorization terminates December 8, 2014.
