Title: Update of the Communications Uses Program, Cost Recovery Fee Schedules and Section 512 of FLPMA for Rights-of-Way  

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to amend its existing right-of-way (ROW) regulations to streamline the communications uses program, update its cost recovery fee schedules for ROW Federal work activities, and include provisions governing the development and approval of operating plans and agreements for ROWs for electric transmission and distribution facilities (powerlines).  Communications uses and powerlines are a subset of ROW activities authorized under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (FLPMA).  Cost recovery fees apply to most ROW activities authorized under either FLPMA or the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended (MLA).
