Blah blah blah blah blah! Man, that is one good government document! :?

Can the ASA request a grant under a non-profit for "ground work" like the clean ups?

Gallons of gas
Total--------Jan. 9, 2007** -Jan. 16, 2007-July 27, 2007--Jan. 17, 2008---July 15, 2008

IMPERIAL County
4,996,626----375,448.03-----236,376.53---395,679.22----242,578.59------356,294.85

Look at all the Gas the burn Down South, now the the Commission wont be hassling them BLM El Centro will be applying for more. The caps are too low, Neil was not applying because he had the Commission hassling him, now people up North are arguing no one applies for more the 1,000,000 so there fine. There's $13 million under O&M so Niel should even be able to apply for enough to pick up the trash, the caps for all category's should be 20% or $2.6 Million for O&M. You guys burn all the gas, if you want your share the caps need to be raised, it's up the you...TJ

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but that is just based on gallons purchased in that area. They really have NO way of knowing how much was actually burned in that area, do they? I mean, I'm sure there are MANY, like myself, that fill up at home and don't have to do so again until I return from the dunes. They have no way of counting people like me, do they?

This is fuel actually used for Off Road recreation, per County, according to fuel diaries turned in by people that participated. It's not by registration think about it, how many OHV's do you think are registered in Imperial County? :-k ...TJ

So in this instance the BLM counts are actually helping us, because the gov actually IS trying to estimate the actual number of gallons used at a particular site? Apparently, as you posted, they are doing this by asking some visitors to the areas to fill out a "log" of how much fuel they use in a weekend, and then extrapolating, I assume based on numbers of visitors, what they think is actually used in the area? Is that about right?

Yes by County, so whatever in in Imperial legal or not, so I was told below is a break down of the OHV fund, under new law...TJ

I feel the caps being considered are arbitrary in nature,a knee jerk reaction to a very large grant submitted under Law Enforcement on the last cycle, and around $20 Million being submitted under NON CESA the previous cycle. Both these conditions no longer exist under the new laws due to the passage of SB742 last year, NON CESA was an unrestricted category that no longer exist, and Law Enforcement is now an entirely different process all together. This limitation also is unfair to areas where one Agency managed the bulk of there opportunity, such as Imperial County which used more fuel than any other County in the State, and only has one real applicant EL Centro BLM.

Any past history being used is now null and void, and in this case violates the simple US Constitutional need for basic representation for taxation, the people that pay the most are in-titled to their Fair share. New data is needed before considering any caps in any category.
Here's a copy of what I submitted as a comment on the Regulations concerning this matter, only took about five minuets, your call folks I got work to do...TJ
