Easing of Northwest Logging Rules Blocked

By GENE JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer 30 minutes ago

SEATTLE - A federal judge struck down a move by the Bush administration to ease logging restrictions in the Northwest, saying the government failed to consider the effect on rare plants and animals.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman said in her ruling Monday that under federal law, authorities had an obligation to show why the logging restrictions should be changed.

These bullies just want us to pay for not supporting their criminal regime. Bastards, thank God for Judges that actually read our country's laws instead of trying to run our country with the Old Testament. :bounce: :bounce: :headbang: :woohoo: :applause:

6. These people are the destroyers of the earth.
Thank God, my state gets a reprieve, but I am sure they will be snuffling around the state again. Too much money here for their dear buddies. May they all rot, slowly.
