Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 31

Since passage of Public Law 106-206, which authorized the Department of Interior to begin charging fees for commercial filming on public lands, the Department has been drafting regulations to govern commercial filming. Final regulations should:

  • Clarify how commercial crews can seek permission to film on public land.
  • Involve the public in reviewing filming proposals.
  • Ensure that the media continues to have the ability to inform the public about public lands.

Assessment of Status: Complete
