Proposed Rule - 36 CFR 7.96
The National Park Service proposes to make several changes to the special regulations that apply to certain national park units in the National Capital Region, including National Mall and Memorial Parks. Among other things, the rule would establish areas at memorials on the National Mall where special events and demonstrations would not be allowed in order to preserve an atmosphere of contemplation.
Maps showing the location of restricted areas are available *here*
This rule will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities under the RFA (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). This certification is based on information contained in a report entitled “Benefit-Cost and Regulatory Flexibility Analyses: Proposed Regulation Revisions for Areas of the National Park System, National Capital Region” and is available online *here*.
