Issues and budgets...

The 2010 federal budget is now open for review.  Yes, it calls for increased federal spending.  So, what does that mean for recreation; especially off-road recreation?

For starters, wilderness, wildlife, water quality, air quality, and energy have an impact on daily life.  The proposed budget provides increased funding for federal agencies overseeing those issues.  

EPA is the early leader with a 34% budget increase over last year.  Countering successive years of reduction, Dept of Interior (BLM, NPS, FWS) will see a modest increase as will Dept of Agriculture (Forest Service).

All increases appear targeted for improving the plight of endangered species and conserving the landscape.

This is the first round of the 2010 budget.  The President has established his priorities.  Now, Congress will change it to meet their priorities.

Follow along at http://www.muirnet.net/4x4voice/index.php/access-issues to learn more about how wilderness, wildlife, water quality, air quality, and energy impact your recreation opportunities,
