The article, Recreation Advisory Committee for Public Lands, shed a positive light on Sec. Zinke's promotion of public-private-partnerships (PPP), giving the "motorized recreation industry a voice in the creation of public lands policy… that involve roads, trails and waterways on federally-controlled lands". Sec. Zinke plans to accomplish this through his newly established Recreation Advisory Committee (RAC). But there is a far greater, and more dangerous agenda with Zinke's plan for corporate involvement in public land.
In 2014, the Blue Ribbon Panel on Sustaining America's Diverse Fish and Wildlife Resources (BRP) was created by Bass Pro shop founder John Morris, and former Wyoming governor Dave Freudenthal. BRP "represents the outdoor recreation retail and manufacturing sector, the energy and automotive industries, private landowners, educational institutions, conservation organizations, sportsmen's groups and state fish and wildlife agencies." One of their goals is "recommending a new funding mechanism to support state fish and wildlife conservation to ensure the sustainability of all fish and wildlife for current and future generations."
