'TITLE XVII--NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM ADDITIONS
``SEC. 1701. DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK BOUNDARY REVISION.
``(a) In General.--The boundary of Death Valley National Park is
adjusted to include--
``.... and
``(3)(A) on transfer of title to the private land to the
National Park Service, the approximately 280 acres of private
land in Inyo County, California, located adjacent to the
southeastern boundary of Death Valley National Park, as
depicted on the map entitled `Proposed Ryan Camp Addition to
Death Valley National Park', numbered 143/100,097, and dated
June 2009; and
``(B) the approximately 1,040 acres of Bureau of Land
Management land contiguous to the private land described in
subparagraph (A), as depicted on the map entitled `Proposed
Ryan Camp Addition to Death Valley National Park', numbered
143/100,097, and dated June 2009. Imagine having the financial clout to get this language out of the DPA2. It has been alleged that two individuals - Preston Chiaro and Henry Golas - were behind this. It's pretty clear Henry wants to make money off the property; tours will begin at $100 per head and no photos will be allowed of the camp... visitors (when allowed) can only purchase photos taken by pro photographers, some of whom participate on this board, and no doubt will bag on our group hard for this.
