People could lose 103,000 acres of Johnson Valley multi-use area.

John Conger, Acting Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Installations and Environment at the Department of Defense. • September 27, 2013

Thank you for your petition.
The Administration’s proposal for expansion of the land reserved for
use by the Marine Corps balances Marine Corps training requirements that
extend throughout the year with preserving safe public access for
recreational activities within certain areas of the Johnson Valley
Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area. The proposal was transmitted to Congress
for consideration on April 26, 2013, because, for areas greater than
5,000 acres, Congress is responsible for creating and renewing
withdrawal of public land for military training and testing.
This base expansion plan was developed over the course of nine years
in consultation with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), community
leaders, and recreational users and was subject to an environmental
impact statement that assessed the needs, alternatives and impacts of
large-scale training exercises at the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air
Ground Combat Center.
