        individually or cumulatively with other actions involving 
        Federal public lands or lands managed by the United States Fish 
        and Wildlife Service, shall be considered under the National 
        Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) to be 
        a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of 
        the human environment, and no additional identification, 
        analysis, or consideration of environmental effects, including 
        cumulative effects, is necessary or required with respect to 
        such an action.
            (3) Other activity not considered.--Federal public land 
        management officials are not required to consider the existence 
        or availability of recreational fishing, hunting, or shooting 
        opportunities on adjacent or nearby public or private lands in 
        the planning for or determination of which Federal public lands 
        are open for these activities or in the setting of levels of 
        use for these activities on Federal public lands, unless the 
        combination or coordination of such opportunities would enhance 
        the recreational fishing, hunting, or shooting opportunities 
        available to the public.
    (d) Federal Public Lands.--
            (1) Lands open.--Notwithstanding any other law, lands under

        lands designated as wilderness or administratively classified 
        as wilderness eligible or suitable and primitive or semi-
        primitive areas and National Monuments, but excluding lands on 
        the Outer Continental Shelf, shall be open to recreational 
        fishing, hunting, and shooting unless the managing Federal 
        agency acts to close lands to such activity. Lands may be made 
        subject to closure to or restriction on recreational fishing, 
        hunting, or shooting if determined by the head of the agency 
        concerned to be necessary and reasonable and supported by facts 
        and evidence, for purposes including resource conservation, 
        public safety, energy or mineral production, energy generation 
        or transmission infrastructure, water supply facilities, 
        protection of other permittees, protection of private property 
        rights or interest, national security, or compliance with other

                    (A) In general.--The head of each Federal agency 
                shall use his or her authorities in a manner consistent 
                with this title and other applicable law, to--
                            (i) lease or permit use of lands under the 
                        jurisdiction of the agency for shooting ranges; 
                        and
                            (ii) designate specific lands under the 
                        jurisdiction of the agency for recreational 
                        shooting activities.
                    (B) Limitation on liability.--Any designation under 
                subparagraph (A)(ii) shall not subject the United 
                States to any civil action or claim for monetary 
                damages for injury or loss of property or personal 
                injury or death caused by any activity occurring at or 
                on such designated lands.
    (e) Necessity in Wilderness Areas and ``Within and Supplemental 
to'' Wilderness Purposes.--
            (1) Minimum requirements for administration.--The provision 
        of opportunities for recreational fishing, hunting, and 
        shooting and the conservation of fish and wildlife to provide 
        sustainable use recreational opportunities on designated 
        Federal wilderness areas shall constitute measures necessary to 
        meet the minimum requirements for the administration of the 
        wilderness area, provided that this determination shall not 
        authorize or facilitate commodity development, use, or 
        extraction, motorized recreational access or use that is not 
        otherwise allowed under the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1131 et 
        seq.), or permanent road construction or maintenance within 
        designated wilderness areas.
            (2) Application of wilderness act.--Provisions of the 
        Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1131 et seq.), stipulating that 
        wilderness purposes are ``within and supplemental to'' the 
        purposes of the underlying Federal land unit are reaffirmed. 
        When seeking to carry out fish and wildlife conservation 
        programs and projects or provide fish and wildlife dependent 
        recreation opportunities on designated wilderness areas, the 
        head of each Federal agency shall implement these supplemental 
        purposes so as to facilitate, enhance, or both, but not to 
        impede the underlying Federal land purposes when seeking to 
        carry out fish and wildlife conservation programs and projects 
        or provide fish and wildlife dependent recreation opportunities 
        in designated wilderness areas, provided that such 
        implementation shall not authorize or facilitate commodity 
        development, use or extraction, or permanent road construction 
        or use within designated wilderness areas.
    (f) Report.--Beginning on the second October 1 after the date of 
the enactment of this Act and biennially on October 1 thereafter, the 
head of each Federal agency who has authority to manage Federal public 
land on which recreational fishing, hunting, or shooting occurs shall 
submit to the Committee on Natural Resources of the House of 
Representatives and the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of 
the Senate a report that describes--
            (1) any Federal public land administered by the agency head 
        that was closed to recreational fishing, hunting, or shooting 
        at any time during the preceding year; and
            (2) the reason for the closure.
    (g) Closures or Significant Restrictions of 640 or More Acres.--

        prescribed by land planning actions referred to in subsection 
        (d) or emergency closures described in paragraph (3) of this 
        subsection, a permanent or temporary withdrawal, change of 
        classification, or change of management status of Federal 
        public land that effectively closes or significantly restricts 
        640 or more contiguous acres of Federal public land to access 
        or use for recreational fishing or hunting or activities 
        related to recreational fishing or hunting, or both, shall take 
        effect only if, before the date of withdrawal or change, the 
        head of the Federal agency that has jurisdiction over the 
        Federal public land--
                    (A) publishes appropriate notice of the withdrawal 
                or change, respectively;
                    (B) demonstrates that coordination has occurred 
                with a State fish and wildlife agency; and
                    (C) submits to the Committee on Natural Resources 
                of the House of Representatives and the Committee on 
                Energy and Natural Resources of the Senate written 
                notice of the withdrawal or change, respectively.
            (2) Aggregate or cumulative effects.--If the aggregate or 
        cumulative effect of separate withdrawals or changes 
        effectively closes or significantly restricts 1,280 or more 
        acres of land or water, such withdrawals and changes shall be 
        treated as a single withdrawal or change for purposes of 
        paragraph (1).
            (3) Emergency closures.--Nothing in this title prohibits a 
        Federal land management agency from establishing or 
        implementing emergency closures or restrictions of the smallest 
        practicable area to provide for public safety, resource 
        conservation, national security, or other purposes authorized 
        by law. Such an emergency closure shall terminate after a 
        reasonable period of time unless converted to a permanent 
        closure consistent with this title.
    (h) National Park Service Units Not Affected.--Nothing in this 
title shall affect or modify management or use of units of the National 
Park System.

management agency to give preference to recreational fishing, hunting, 
or shooting over other uses of Federal public land or over land or 
water management priorities established by Federal law.
    (j) Consultation With Councils.--In fulfilling the duties set forth 
in this Act, the heads of Federal agencies shall consult with

            (1) In general.--Nothing in this title shall be construed 
        as interfering with, diminishing, or conflicting with the 
        authority, jurisdiction, or responsibility of any State to 
        exercise primary management, control, or regulation of fish and 
        wildlife under State law (including regulations) on land or 
        water within the State, including on Federal public land.
            (2) Federal licenses.--Nothing in this title shall be 
        construed to authorize the head of a Federal agency to require 
        a license, fee, or permit to fish, hunt, or trap on land or 
        water in a State, including on Federal public land in the 
        States, except that this paragraph shall not affect the 
        Migratory Bird Stamp requirement set forth in the Migratory 
        Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp Act (16 U.S.C. 718 et

        the land managed by the lead agency.
            (2) Lead agency.--The term ``lead agency'' means the agency

                provided by a recreation service provider outside 
                Federal recreational lands and waters, such as costs 
                for transportation, lodging, and other services before 
                or after a trip; and
                    (B) fees to be paid by permit holder under 
                applicable law to provide services on other Federal 
                lands, if separate permits are issued to that permit 
                holder for a single event or trip.
    (b) Fee Conditions.--The fee charged by the Secretary for a permit 
issued under section 803(h) of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement

recreation permits issued to recreation service providers under 
subparagraphs (B) and (C) of section 803(h)(2) of the Federal Lands 
Recreation Enhancement Act (16 U.S.C. 6802(h)(2)) shall be held in 
special accounts established for each specific unit or area for which 
such revenues are collected, and shall remain available for 
expenditure, without further appropriation, until expended.
    (b) Use of Permit Fees.--Revenues from special recreation permits 
issued to recreation service providers under subparagraphs (B) and (C) 
of section 803(h)(2) of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act 
(16 U.S.C. 6802(h)(2)) shall be used only--
            (1) to partially offset the Secretary's direct cost of 
        administering the permits;
            (2) to improve and streamline the permitting process; and
            (3) for related recreation infrastructure and other 
        purposes specifically to support recreation activities at the 
        specific site for which use is authorized under the permit, 
        after obtaining input from any related permittees; provided, 
        however, that the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 
        1 et seq.) shall not apply to any advisory committee or other 
        group established to carry out this paragraph.
    (c) Limitation on Use of Fees.--The Secretary may not use any

    (a) In General.--In reviewing and adjusting allocations of use for 
priority use permits for special uses of Federal recreational lands and 
waters managed by the Forest Service, and in renewing such permits, the 
Secretary of Agriculture shall allocate to a permit holder a level of 
use that is no less than the highest amount of actual annual use over 
the reviewed period plus 25 percent, capped at the amount of use 
allocated when the permit was issued unless additional capacity is 
available. The Secretary may assign any use remaining after adjusting 
allocations on a temporary basis to qualified permit holders.
    (b) Waiver.--Use reviews under subsection (a) may be waived for 
periods in which circumstances that prevented use of assigned capacity, 
such as weather, fire, natural disasters, wildlife displacement, 
business interruptions, insufficient availability of hunting and 
fishing licenses, or when allocations on permits include significant 
shoulder seasons. The authorizing office may approve non-use without 
reducing the number of service days assigned to the permit in such 
circumstances at the request of the permit holder. Approved non-use may 
be temporarily assigned to other qualified permit holders when 
conditions warrant.

SEC. 2107. AUTHORIZATION OF TEMPORARY PERMITS FOR NEW USES FOR THE 
              FOREST SERVICE AND BLM.

Act, the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Interior 
shall establish and implement a program to authorize temporary permits 
for new recreational uses of Federal recreational lands and waters 
managed by the Forest Service or the Bureau of Land Management, 
respectively, and to provide for the conversions of such temporary

251, subpart B, of title 36 Code of Federal Regulations, and the 
Secretary of the Interior shall revise subpart 2932, of title 43, Code 
of Federal Regulations, to streamline the processes for the issuance 
and renewal of outfitter and guide special use permits. Such amended 
regulations shall--
            (1) shorten application processing times and minimize 
        application and administration costs; and
            (2) provide for the use of programmatic environmental 
        assessments and categorical exclusions for environmental 
        reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42

        maximum extent allowable under applicable law, including, but 
        not limited to, use of a categorical exclusion as provided 
        under section 803(h)(3) of the Federal Lands Recreation 
        Enhancement Act (16 U.S.C. 6802(h)(3)).

    (a) Regulatory Process.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Agriculture shall revise 
section 251.58 of title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, and the 
Secretary of the Interior shall revise section 2932.31(e) and (f) of 
title 43, Code of Federal Regulations, to reduce costs and minimize the 
burden of cost recovery on small businesses and adverse impacts of cost 
recovery on jobs in the outfitting and guiding industry and on rural 
economies provided, however, that nothing in the revised regulations 
shall further limit the Secretary's authority to issue or renew 
recreation special use permits.
    (b) De Minimis Exemption.--
            (1) Cost recovery limitation.--Any regulations issued by 
        the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary of Agriculture 
        to establish fees to recover processing costs for recreation 
        special use applications and monitoring costs for recreation 
        special use authorizations shall include an exemption providing 
        that at least the first 50 hours of work necessary in any one 
        year to process and/or monitor such an application shall not be 
        subject to cost recovery. The application of a 50-hour credit 
        per permit shall also apply to any monitoring fees on a per 
        annum basis during the term of each permit.
            (2) Application of exemption.--An exemption under paragraph 
        (1) shall apply to the processing of each recreation special 
        use permit application and monitoring of each recreation 
        special use authorization for which cost recovery is required, 
        including any application or authorization requiring more than 
        50 hours (or such other greater number of hours specified for 
        exemption) to process or monitor. In the event that the amount 
        of work required to process such an application or monitor such 
        an authorization exceeds the specified exemption, the amount of 
        work for which cost recovery is required shall be reduced by 
        the amount of the exemption.
            (3) Multiple applications.--In situations involving 
        multiple recreation special use applications for similar 
        services in the same unit or area that require more than 50 
        hours (or such other greater number of hours specified for 
        exemption) in the aggregate to process, the Secretary shall, 
        regardless of whether the applications are solicited or 
        unsolicited and whether there is competitive interest--
                    (A) determine the share of the aggregate amount to 
                be allocated to each application, on an equal or 
                prorated basis, as appropriate; and
                    (B) for each application, apply a separate 
                exemption of up to 50 hours (or such other greater 
                number of hours specified for exemption) to the share 
                allocated to such application.
            (4) Cost reduction.--The agency processing a recreation 
        special use application shall utilize existing studies and 
        analysis to the greatest extent practicable in order to reduce 
        the amount of work and cost necessary to process the 
        application.
            (5) Limitation.--The Secretary of the Interior and the 
        Secretary of Agriculture may not recover as processing costs 
        for recreation special use applications and monitoring costs 
        for recreation special use authorizations any costs for 
        consultations conducted under section 7 of the Endangered 
        Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1536) or for biological 
        monitoring on Federal recreational lands and waters under such 
        Act for listed, proposed, or candidate species.
            (6) Waiver of cost recovery.--The Secretary of the Interior 
        and the Secretary of Agriculture may waive the recovery of 
        costs for processing recreation special use permit applications 
        and renewals, on a categorical or case-by-case basis as 
        appropriate, if the Secretary determines that--
                    (A) such costs would impose a significant economic 
                burden on any small business or category of small 
                businesses;
                    (B) such cost recovery could threaten the ability 
                of an applicant or permittee to provide, in a 
                particular area, a particular outdoor recreational 
                activity that is consistent with the public interest 
                and with applicable resource management plans; or
                    (C) prevailing economic conditions are unfavorable, 
                such as during economic recessions, or when drought, 
                fire, or other natural disasters have depressed 
                economic activity in the area of operation.

SEC. 2111. EXTENSION OF FOREST SERVICE RECREATION PRIORITY USE PERMITS.

    Where the holder of a special use permit for outfitting and guiding 
that authorizes priority use has submitted a request for renewal of 
such permit in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, the 
Secretary of Agriculture shall have the authority to grant the holder 
one or more extensions of the existing permit for additional items not 
to exceed 5 years in the aggregate, as necessary to allow the Secretary 
to complete the renewal process and to avoid the interruption of 
services under such permit. Before granting an extension under this 
section, the Secretary shall take all reasonable and appropriate steps 
to complete the renewal process before the expiration of the special 
use permit.
