Background:

The purpose of this oversight hearing is to hear about diverse, locally initiated outdoor programs that expand recreational opportunities on public lands. Recreational opportunities on public land contribute to local economies, but in most cases, these economies cannot rely solely upon recreation for their livelihood. Locally-initiated efforts among outdoor recreation groups, small businesses, and government entities identify and solve problems better than federally imposed policies. For programs to succeed, they need to be supported by stakeholders, particularly local citizens and their elected leaders.
