Title: ●Technical and Clarifying Edits to National Park Service Regulations Establishing Penalties, Mandating Blood Tests for Drunk Driving, and Prohibiting Mechanical Transport in Wilderness 

This rule would make technical corrections to National Park Service regulations in 36 CFR parts 1 and 4 by:  Deleting outdated penalty provisions to bring the regulations into conformity with new statutory authority in 54 USC 100751(c); and removing a blood test as one of the mandatory test options for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol to conform with two recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions that generally require a warrant for blood testing. In 36 CFR part 2, the rule would add a clarifying prohibition on using a wheeled device (e.g., a game cart) in established wilderness to section 2.20, "Skating, skateboards, and similar devices."
