Im actually a federal employee working through the shutdown, the information I was given is that all BLM land is open like it normally would be unless its an area that you would normally pay to use (fee areas like glamis or dumont). Those areas are closed. The Forests are open but any road owned by the forest service that has a gate is closed and cannot be used. Hope that clears it up some we dont get much info either. Also Ill say that your likelihood of getting caught in an area you shouldnt be in is higher right now than normal, the people still working are only here to patrol and keep people out.
What Forest order, law or regulation is being cited for enforcement?
Posting a sign that says area is closed by the Federal shutdown is not legal.
The shutdown tells some federal employees to go home. No legal publicly noticed closure occurred.
I suggest this is Tyranny by our executive branch. I suggest that the Executive branch manages public lands and the administration is acting like a King or Dictator attempting to punish the people.
This is no longer a nation of laws when law enforcement acts without legal authority.
This is not the first time the government has shut down. When it happened in the past, government employees, just go home.
