Establishment of Supplementary Rules

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Establishment of supplementary rules prohibiting the possession 
and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons under 21 years of 
age, the possession of a handgun by persons under 18 years of age or 
the possession of drug paraphernalia by any person while on public 
lands.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages by 
underage persons, the possession of handguns by juveniles and/or the 
possession of drug paraphernalia are all growing problems on public 
lands. The implementation and enforcement of these rules by BLM law 
enforcement officers will help to protect and promote the public peace, 
health, safety and welfare of the users of public lands and reduce the 
destruction of natural resources that are associated with these 
activities.
    This rule adopts Colorado Revised Statutes (18-13-122) dealing with 
the illegal possession or consumption of ethyl alcohol by an underage 
person, Colorado Revised Statutes (18-12-108.5) dealing with possession 
of handguns by juveniles, and Colorado Revised Statutes (18-18-428) 
dealing with possession of drug paraphernalia in a manner consistent 
with Colorado Revised Statutes on all BLM administered lands within the 
Canon City District, State of Colorado.

EFFECTIVE DATE: These restrictions will be effective May 17, 1996 and 
will remain in effect until rescinded or modified by the authorized 
officer.

ADDRESSES: Canon City District Office, 3170 East Main St., Canon City, 
Colorado 81212.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jack H. Hagan, District Law 
Enforcement Ranger, at (719) 269-8535.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The authority for these restrictions is 
provided in 43 CFR 8365.1-4 and 43 CFR 8365.1-6. Violation of these 
restrictions are punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 and/or 
imprisonment not to exceed 12 months as authorized in 43 CFR 8360-7.
