Washington D-C –
U-S Senator Craig Thomas says fees are not appropriate for most Bureau of Land Management lands and Forest service land. During a hearing on last years passage of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Thomas said that while Park Service fees are useful he thinks other fees can go too far. Thomas thinks charging someone extra to go fishing in the Big Horns or to ride around on the Sand Dunes in Southwest Wyoming is wrong. Thomas says fees on other federal lands should only be charged for legitimate enhanced services.
