Payments and Receipts

Payment Reports | Projected Payments | Receipt Reports | Additional Information about Receipts

 

Under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) makes payments to certain counties in western Oregon. For more information about BLM payments, please see http://www.blm.gov/or/rac/ctypaypayments.php

 

The following reports show only Forest Service related payments and receipts.

NOTE: Although the reports are labeled “DRAFT,” all figures are accurate –except for a $10 reporting error over two counties in Michigan which only affects the ASR-10-02 and ASR-10-03. Notations have been made within the reports to identify the errors and to adjust the totals accordingly.  “Final” reports will replace the “Draft” reports once the technical difficulty within the system has been resolved.

ASR 18-2, Secure Rural Schools Act Titles I, II and III Report: Shows the dollar amount of the county share of the State Payment and the percentages and dollar amounts allocated among titles I, II and III. The report is ordered by region, proclaimed national forest (PNF), state and county. It also shows total payment by Forest Service region and a national total.

Data is ordered by region, proclaimed national forest (PNF), state and county. Report SRS2 shows distributions from Albuquerque Service Center to Forest Service regions. Additional adjustments may be made between regions and forests to ensure the proper funds are available to the appropriate national forest and associated resource advisory committee(s). Generally, funds will be assigned to the “lead national forest” for the committee and is usually the home unit of the designated federal officer for the committee.

Projected payments (Projections posted in 2013 do not include potential sequestration impacts)

Projected State Payment.  Periodically, the Forest Service provides an estimate of future years’ Secure Rural Schools State Payments to help counties make informed decisions about elections and allocations. The projected State Payment for all titles is only an estimate based on the most current data available at the time the projections are made. (See Calculating Payments for a discussion of factors and variables that go into calculating the State Payment.)  Projected State payment for FY2012 shows all affected counties.  Actual payment to be made for FY2012 will vary depending on the number of counties that elect to receive a share of the State payment.

Estimated 25-percent payments.  The following table shows the estimated 25-percent payment that would have been made to states (and counties) for fiscal years 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 if they were not receiving a Secure Rural Schools Act State payment.  Receipts are reported by proclaimed national forest and attributed to the counties in which the proclaimed national forest is located in proportion to the acreage in each county.  Payments to states are calculated on the apportioned receipts.  Counties that elected not to participate in the Secure Rural Schools Act State payment began receiving payments based  on the 7-year rolling average in fiscal year 2008. 

 

"High 3 payments".  The Secure Rural Schools Act State payment calculation uses multiple factors, including acres of Federal land within an eligible county, the county’s share of the average of the 3 highest 25-percent and safety net payments to the state during fiscal year 1986 through fiscal year 1999, and an income adjustment based on the per capita personal income for each county.

Additional information about receipts

Receipts are reported by Proclaimed National Forest in the following classes and are used to calculate the 25% Payment to States:

Class 1 - Timber. Amounts collected and deposited into the timber sale deposit fund from the sale of timber and certain other forest products such as posts, poles and firewood. (It does not include interest, fines, penalties, or amounts in excess of contract stumpage rates collected in timber trespass, timber property, or other timber settlement activities.)

Class 2 - Grazing east (grazing except 16 Western States.) Amounts collected for all grazing trespass settlements for resource value and grazing fees, regardless of class of livestock, received for forage consumed on other than the sixteen western States (Class 8).

Class 3 - Land Use. Amounts collected for land uses including resource value of trespass settlements and entire amounts of pasture permit fees. (It does not include fees from land uses related to power, minerals, or recreation uses covered in other classes.)

Class 4 - Recreation Special Uses. Amounts collected for all types of recreation use except user fees collected under Land and Water Conservation Fund (class 7).

Class 5 - Power. Amounts collected for uses authorized by Forest Service permits or easements for all types of power generating projects and power transmission line rights-of-way

Class 6 - Minerals. Amounts collected from sale of minerals and permit fees. Includes mineral lease and permit fees collected by the United States Department of the Interior on acquired lands having National Forest status but does not include any mineral revenue derived from National Forest land which was established from the public domain.

Class 7 - Recreation User Fees. Amounts collected for admission and user fees at designated Land and Water Conservation Fund areas.

Class 8 - Grazing West. Amounts collected for grazing fees in national forests in the sixteen western States: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

Class 9 - Quartz Crystals. Amounts collected subject to Public Law 100-446 for quartz in Arkansas.
The following deposits, credits and collections are included in the calculation for sharing 25% of receipts in Payments to States:

KV Revenue includes collections under the Knutson-Vandenberg Act of June 9, 1930, as amended (16 U.S.C. 576-576b). The K-V Act authorizes collections from timber sale purchasers for sale area improvement work including reforestation.

Purchaser Road Credit and Specified Road Costs are, generally, credits, deposits or adjustments to payments by purchasers of timber sale contracts.

The Timber Salvage Sale receipts are payment for salvageable material used to facilitate the timely removal of timber damaged by fire, wind, insects, diseases, or other events.

TPTP, Timber Sale Pipeline Restoration Fund, is used for restoring the timber sale “pipeline” and addressing backlog recreation project needs. These funds are revenue from timber sales released under section 2001(k) of the fiscal year 1995 Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Assistance and Recessions Act, minus payments to States and local governments and other necessary deposits (sec. 60.1, para. 27).
