BLM LTVA Pass Rate Increase

BLM Sacramento: $900 for your LTVA Pass?

The BLM Regional Office in Sacramento has a new Acting Deputy State Director, Danielle K Chi (, 916-978-4649) who is about to sneak through an LTVA Pass rate increase to almost $900 for a single season; that’s $1800 per year for full-timers!

While this is currently set for the Northern LTVAs run by the Bishop California Field Office, Danielle Chi is now the Deputy Director for the entire state of California of which Imperial Dam is in, even while being managed by the Yuma BLM office. Since this comes from the top at the state and regional levels, you know that it won’t take long for Imperial Dam and other LTVAs like Quartzsite to follow with HUGE rate increases targeting us gray-haired folks.

Please see the story the RV Hobo did on uncovering an effort by the “New” BLM to target Senior Citizens who will bear the brunt of their mismanagement costs by placing a 300% rate increase on us, while they only ask for a 10% – 20% rate increase for everyone else. Story Here.

Make no mistake about it: They targeted us grey-haired folks to pay for their mismanagement, please read the story here, in order to pay for their personal “horse corrals” that are never used, solar “shingles” and much more. While we’re used to having a quality BLM Ranger like Bill Alexander, many are not, as the story shows. And, unfortunately, Bill Alexander won’t be here forever.

Unless you want to be paying $900 for a desert parking spot on OUR PUBLIC LANDS, please get proactive and send Danielle Chi an email at and give her a call at (916) 978-4649. We can stop this right now, but only if we ALL act. Please get your friends and family to email and call Acting Deputy State Director Danielle K Chi (, 916-978-4649) as well. A sample email you can cut and paste and send to her is available online here.
