TAPPED FOR FEDERAL RECREATION COMMITTEE
OAKLEY, CA (Aug 5) - Don Amador, owner of a recreation consulting company in Oakley, California, was recently appointed by the USDA Secretary of Agriculture to serve on the Pacific Southwest Region Recreation Resource Advisory Committee (RAC). Secretary Thomas Vilsack appointed Amador to represent Summer Motorized Recreation on the RAC. The term is for 3 years.
This will be Amador’s second term on the RAC. The committee is composed of 11 voting members that represent diverse interests. The Recreation RAC was established in compliance with the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (Public Law No. 108-447).
Don Amador, owner of Quiet Warrior Racing, states, “I believe that sensible use fees have an important role to play in the long-term viability of recreation programs on federal lands.”
Amador, who also serves as the Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, concludes, “It has been my experience that recreationists will support use fees as long as those fees are fair and are used to maintain and improve the sites where those funds are collected. I consider it an honor to have been reappointed to the RAC.”
