Title: Right-of-Way Cost Recovery and Communication Site Right-of-Way Rents  

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to amend its existing right-of-way regulations to streamline the communications use program, including an update of the methodology for obtaining fair market value (FMV) for rentals being charged, and update its cost recovery fee schedules for right-of-way work activities. Communications uses are a subset of right-of-way activities authorized under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (FLPMA). The cost recovery fees apply to most right-of-way activities authorized under either FLPMA or the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended (MLA).
