Summary as introduced:
Special use permits.  Authorizes the State Forester to issue the special use permit for certain activities on state forest lands without the approval of the Board of Forestry. The bill expands the requirement for a permit for mountain biking to all bike riding. The existing $15 fee is removed; instead it is left to the Department to set the fee through the regulatory process. The bill also removes the option of the State Forester to issue a separate license to trap on state forest lands.
