Purpose and Reason:

The Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) proposes to adopt a more streamlined regulation structure for its Parks and Management Area Regulations, RICR 250-100. These regulations are currently existing as six different parts and are inconsistent with current RIDEM practices. There are also areas where the regulations are redundant or do not comply with more recently amended regulations provided in parts pertaining to boating and Fish and Wildlife. The new regulatory structure takes the six parts and consolidates them into three distinct regulatory parts
