gapertimmy Posted January 29, 2001 Share Posted January 29, 2001 I saw this article in the times yesterday, some new info on how (or how they want us to think) fee demo funds are being used: quote: Last year, the fee program raised $6.5 million in Washington and Oregon, nearly double the amount raised during the first year of operation in 1997. This year, the fees will remain the same for the regionwide Northwest Forest Passes - $5 for a day pass, $30 for an annual pass - but the Forest Service hopes to boost revenue by getting more people to comply with payment rules. In years past, Forest Service rangers who found a car without a pass might simply leave a payment envelope on the windshield. But as of May 1, under new rules, rangers are supposed to record the license plate of any vehicle found without a pass and then issue a warning. . Those who fail to pay will risk a fine that could be as high as $50. check out the rest of the article here Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
