                                BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     In 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that
                   naturally occurring asbestos (NOA) in the Clear Creak Manage-
                   ment Area's (CCMA) serpentine soils posed a significant public
                   health risk, particularly to off-highway vehicle (OHV) users.1 Later
                   that year, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) temporarily
                   closed the CCMA and initiated a process to develop a long-term Re-
                   source Management Plan (RMP) governing recreational uses in the
