Superintendents Compendium Public Comments Sought
Contact: Kevin Tillman, 406-666-3304
Bighorn Canyon NRA is soliciting public comment for the Superintendent's Compendium. The Compendium is reviewed annually each year.
The rules and regulations that the National Park Service enforces in all National Parks come from Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations. Title 36 allows the Superintendent to enact certain rules to allow or restrict activities. Many of the Compendiums regulations complement existing State a local laws or regulations currently in effect in the park. The Compendium does; nor cannot, replace or repeal and state or federal laws.
To access an electronic copy of the compendium, please visit our website at: http://www.nps.gov/bica/parkmgmt/lawsandpolicies.htm.

Box 7458, Fort Smith, MT 59035 or email comments to KevinTillman.

National Park Service personnel will make all submissions from organizations, business, and from individuals identifying themselves representatives or officials of organizations or business available for public inspection in their entirety. Those who wish the NPS to withhold their name and/or address must state this at the beginning of the comment.
