You Play You Pay

And you thought you could ride the gravy train forever. Well,
turns out you were wrong. From now on, thanks
to some sneaky late night passage of a bill by Congress, you may be charged fees to use certain public lands. The law
applies to sites managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Bureau of
Reclamation. which means lots of publics lands used by fisherfolk, motorcyclists, ATV-hounds and so on. In all honesty,
it’s not such a bad idea. It all depends, of course, on how much the fees are and where the money goes. Fees to improve
or manage the lands is one thing. Fees to pay for some Congressman’s tricked out SUV is another.
