Session Type: Presentation
Track: General Session

Description

In this session, you’ll get an update on regulations, legislation and lawsuits that have the potential to impact your bottom line.  You’ll learn what you need to do to take advantage of some of the latest de-regulation initiatives.  Among the issues:

Two wage and hour lawsuits are pending against outfitters with federal permits.  The outcome could determine how you operate in the backcountry.

What happened to legislation designed to prevent implementation of the higher minimum wage for federal permits and contractors?  What should I do if the Department of Labor clause shows up in my permit?

Has the rule that required overtime pay for previously exempt Executive, Administrative and Professional employees been rescinded or has the Court case that stopped its implementation been resolved?

 Where are the new NPS commercial use authorization rules and how will they affect my access?  Where are CUA fees headed?  What is the potential that CUA’s are going to be converted to contracts?

What is the status of legislation (H.R. 2771) to restore the seasonal recreational establishment exemption for outfitters with permits and for those with traveling camps?

Where does legislation that proposes to streamline permitting stand?

What is AOA doing about Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations?

What other regulations are in play for good or bad?

This session is for outfitters who are keenly interested in the regulatory issues that impact their businesses.  It will help you understand the significance of these issues to your bottom line as they evolve over the next year.
