Colorado’s U.S. senators have introduced a bill to boost the outdoor recreation industry on public lands.

It would benefit outfitters, educational organizations and community groups by giving them easier access to the permits they need to work or seek recreation on federal lands.

Senators Cory Gardner, a Republican, and Michael Bennet, a Democrat, call their bill the Simplifying Outdoor Access for Recreation (SOAR) Act.

Nearly 68% of Colorado’s forests are owned by the federal government. About 11.3 million acres of the land are managed by the U.S. Forest Service.
