Title: Special Uses--Cost Recovery  

Consistent with the Forest Service's statutory cost recovery duty, the rulemaking updates the processing and monitoring fee schedules for special uses based on the agency's current costs to process special use applications and monitor compliance with special use authorizations. Also, consistent with the Forest Service's cost recovery statutes, the rulemaking amends the Forest Service's cost recovery regulations to provide for charging processing fees for screening special use proposals before a special use application is accepted. Consistent with the Forest Service's cost recovery statutes, the rulemaking also removes the current exemption in the Forest Service's cost recovery regulations for recreation special use applications and authorizations that require 50 hours or less to process or monitor, except those for recreation residences. This rulemaking will meet the Administration's priority to improve service delivery, customer experience, and reduce administrative burdens for those accessing public benefits and services.
