(a) Authority of Secretary of Defense

(1) Program

(A) In general

The Secretary of Defense shall carry out a program to provide

for the conservation and rehabilitation of natural resources on

military installations.

(B) Integrated natural resources management plan

To facilitate the program, the Secretary of each military

department shall prepare and implement an integrated natural

resources management plan for each military installation in the

United States under the jurisdiction of the Secretary, unless

the Secretary determines that the absence of significant

natural resources on a particular installation makes

preparation of such a plan inappropriate.

(2) Cooperative preparation

The Secretary of a military department shall prepare each

integrated natural resources management plan for which the

Secretary is responsible in cooperation with the Secretary of the

Interior, acting through the Director of the United States Fish

and Wildlife Service, and the head of each appropriate State fish

and wildlife agency for the State in which the military

installation concerned is located. Consistent with paragraph

(4), the resulting plan for the military installation shall

reflect the mutual agreement of the parties concerning

conservation, protection, and management of fish and wildlife

resources.

(3) Purposes of program

Consistent with the use of military installations to ensure the

preparedness of the Armed Forces, the Secretaries of the military

departments shall carry out the program required by this

subsection to provide for -

on military installations;

(B) the sustainable multipurpose use of the resources, which

shall include hunting, fishing, trapping, and nonconsumptive

uses; and

(C) subject to safety requirements and military security,

public access to military installations to facilitate the use.

(4) Effect on other law

Nothing in this subchapter -

(A)(i) affects any provision of a Federal law governing the

and wildlife resources;

(G) public access to the military installation that is

necessary or appropriate for the use described in subparagraph

(F), subject to requirements necessary to ensure safety and

military security;

(H) enforcement of applicable natural resource laws

(including regulations);

thereto on a regular basis, but not less often than every 5

years; and

(3) may stipulate the issuance of special State hunting and

fishing permits to individuals and require payment of nominal

fees therefor, which fees shall be utilized for the protection,

conservation, and management of fish and wildlife, including

habitat improvement and related activities in accordance with the

integrated natural resources management plan; except that -

(A) the Commanding Officer of the installation or persons

designated by that Officer are authorized to enforce such

special hunting and fishing permits and to collect, spend,

administer, and account for fees for the permits, acting as

agent or agents for the State if the integrated natural

resources management plan so provides, and

(B) the fees collected under this paragraph may not be

expended with respect to other than the military installation

on which collected, unless the military installation is

subsequently closed, in which case the fees may be transferred

to another military installation to be used for the same

purposes.

(c) Prohibitions on sale and lease of lands unless effects

compatible with plan

After an integrated natural resources management plan is agreed

to under subsection (a) of this section -

(1) no sale of land, or forest products from land, that is

within a military installation covered by that plan may be made

under section 2665(a) or (b) of title 10; and

(2) no leasing of land that is within the installation may be

made under section 2667 of such title 10;

unless the effects of that sale or leasing are compatible with the

purposes of the plan.

services that are necessary for that implementation and

enforcement; and

(2) priority shall be given to the entering into of contracts

for the procurement of such implementation and enforcement

services with Federal and State agencies having responsibility

for the conservation or management of fish or wildlife.

(e) Applicability of other laws

authority of this section and section 670b of this title shall not

be deemed to be, nor treated as, cooperative agreements to which

chapter 63 of title 31 applies.

State agencies and Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of

Agriculture requiring stamps for hunting, trapping, and fishing

on public lands subject to programs; conditions of agreement

-STATUTE-

(a) Any State agency may agree with the Secretary of the Interior

and the Secretary of Agriculture (or with the Secretary of the

Interior or the Secretary of Agriculture, as the case may be, if

within the State concerned all conservation and rehabilitation

programs under this subchapter will be implemented by him) that no

individual will be permitted to hunt, trap, or fish on any public

land within the State which is subject to a conservation and

rehabilitation program implemented under this subchapter unless at

the time such individual is engaged in such activity he has on his

person a valid public land management area stamp issued pursuant to

this section.

(b) Any agreement made pursuant to subsection (a) of this section

to require the issuance of public land management area stamps shall

be subject to the following conditions:

(1) Such stamps shall be issued, sold, and the fees therefor

collected, by the State agency or by the authorized agents of

such agency.

(2) Notice of the requirement to possess such stamps shall be

displayed prominently in all places where State hunting,

trapping, or fishing licenses are sold. To the maximum extent

practicable, the sale of such stamps shall be combined with the

sale of such State hunting, trapping, and fishing licenses.

(3) Except for expenses incurred in the printing, issuing, or

selling of such stamps, the fees collected for such stamps by the

State agency shall be utilized in carrying out conservation and

rehabilitation programs implemented under this subchapter in the

State concerned. Such fees may be used by the State agency to

acquire lands or interests therein from willing sellers or donors

to provide public access to program lands that have no existing

public access for enhancement of outdoor recreation and wildlife

conservation: Provided, That the Secretary of Agriculture and the

Secretary of the Interior maintain such access, or ensure that

maintenance is provided for such access, through or to lands

within their respective jurisdiction.

(4) The purchase of any such stamp shall entitle the purchaser

thereof to hunt, trap, and fish on any public land within such

State which is the subject of a conservation or rehabilitation

program implemented under this subchapter except to the extent

that the public use of such land is limited pursuant to a

comprehensive plan or cooperative agreement; but the purchase of

any such stamp shall not be construed as (A) eliminating the

requirement for the purchase of a migratory bird hunting stamp as

set forth in section 718a of this title, or (B) relieving the

purchaser from compliance with any applicable State game and fish

laws and regulations.

(5) The amount of the fee to be charged for such stamps, the

age at which the individual is required to acquire such a stamp,

and the expiration date for such stamps shall be mutually agreed

upon by the State agency and the Secretary or Secretaries

concerned; except that each such stamp shall be void not later

than one year after the date of issuance.

(6) Each such stamp must be validated by the purchaser thereof

by signing his name across the face of the stamp.

(7) Any individual to whom a stamp is sold pursuant to this

section shall upon request exhibit such stamp for inspection to

any officer or employee of the Department of the Interior or the

Department of Agriculture, or to any other person who is

authorized to enforce section 670j(a) of this title.
