DescriptionThe two decades which have passed since the era of the Outdoor Recreation Resources Review Commission (ORRRC) have been active and fruitful in terms of Federal recreation legislation. The Commission and its final report "Outdoor Recreation for America" strongly influenced the burst of recreation legislation in the 1960's. Even today, the studies prepared under the guidance of the Commission continue to provide useful baseline data. This paper addresses three areas of trends in outdoor recreation legislation - trends in context, content, and consequences.
