AN ACT TO PROVIDE FOR EQUESTRIAN ACCESS TO CERTAIN GAME LANDS.
Amends GS 113-264 by adding a provision applicable only to game lands or wildlife refuges in Haywood County, that requires the Wildlife Resources Commission (Commission) to make game lands or wildlife refuges it owns or manages open and available for equine use (meaning use by pack and saddle animals) where there is an established tradition of such use. Specifies that this does not prevent the Commission from establishing operating hours or closure of lands for maintenance or repair. Makes conforming changes. Requires the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the Commission to adopt temporary and permanent rules to implement this act.
