    Draft OHV Management Guidelines to be Released

    PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing
    to release its draft guidelines for controlling off-highway vehicles (OHVs) on
    millions of acres of public land, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA)

    The BLM will unveil its draft national OHV management strategy by November 15
    and then give the public 30 days to comment on the proposal. The plan is
    designed to give BLM land managers guidance on OHV management and access
    issues "while protecting environmentally sensitive areas on the public
    lands,'' the BLM said.

    The AMA will post a notice on its website at as soon as
    the draft national OHV management strategy is released and the 30-day comment
    period begins.

    The BLM, an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior, manages 264 million
    acres, which is more than any other federal agency. Most of this public land
    is in 12 western states, including Alaska. The BLM is responsible for
    preserving open space by managing the public land for multiple uses, including
    outdoor recreation, and is responsible for conserving natural, historical,
    cultural and other resources on the land.

    The American Motorcyclist Association is a 270,000-member nonprofit
    organization. Established in 1924, the Association's purpose is to pursue,
    protect and promote the interests of motorcyclists, while serving the needs of
    its members. For more information, visit the AMA website at:
