BOISE, Idaho (AP) — In a story Aug. 22 about recreation access on Idaho's state lands, The Associated Press reported erroneously how much the Idaho Department of Fish and Game would pay the Idaho Department of Lands annually for that access. The total compensation is $580,000, not $58,000.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Idaho agencies near deal on recreation on state land

The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is considering paying the Idaho Department of Lands to retain public recreation access to nearly 3,600 square miles of state land

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Fish and Game Commission is considering paying another state agency to retain public recreation access to nearly 3,600 square miles (9,324 square kilometers) of state land.

On Tuesday, the Idaho Land Board adopted a new recreation policy that allows continued recreational use on the state endowment lands.

It also approved an agreement with the Fish and Game Commission. Under the deal, Fish and Game would compensate the Department of Lands about $580,000 a year in cash and services.

Fish and Game commissioners are expected to consider the deal on Thursday.

Ed Schriever, deputy director of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, told the Lewiston Tribune that even if the commissioners approve the deal, others can try to outbid the department for some of the land.

"What the draft agreement would do is provide the land board with a model that different proposals would be gauged against to see which one is better for endowment beneficiaries," he said.

Fish and Game will also be required to provide periodic law enforcement services on the endowment land and enforce any rules and regulations implemented by the state Department of Land as part of the agreement.

The annual payment for access to the lands would come down to about $367,000 a year with those services.
