Public Comment Sought for Smith River State Park and River Corridor Biennial Rule - Comments accepted through January 19, 2017

Montana State Parks ( announced today that it is seeking comment on proposed changes to the Smith River State Park and River Corridor Biennial Rule. Public comments will be accepted through Thursday, January 19th, 2017 at 5pm. The proposed draft Smith River Biennial Rule would change language related to home-made, bear resistant storage containers for storing food, garbage and other attractants. While certified home-made containers will still be allowed, capacity for certifying these containers is limited. Removing language which references these containers specifically would better align visitor expectations with the limited availability of certification professionals. The remaining edits/changes to the rule are grammatical to improve consistency and understanding of terminology and the recognition of a new commercial outfitter. The proposed rule does not include any fee changes.
