BAKERSFIELD, CA (October 4, 2007) ORBA's President & CEO, Roy Denner, has been appointed to the recently established Recreation Resource Advisory Committee (RRAC) for the Pacific Southwest Region. The purpose of this citizen's advisory committee is to provide recommendations on creating new or changing existing fees for entry to recreation areas managed by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Denner, who testified in Congress regarding the fee program during its trial period, stated that "It is extremely important to me that the bulk of any fees collected at federal recreation sites go right back to those sites to improve recreation opportunities."The RRAC is composed of five members who represent recreational users; three representing outfitters and environmental groups; and three who represent tourism, Indian Tribes, and local government. The first meeting of the RRAC will take place in Sacramento on 11/5-6 at the California Travel and Tourism Board Room.
