Conservationists rev up roadless rule campaign
www.wilderness-sportsman.com (more stories like this updated daily in the news section)

As I'm sure many know, the Bush admin deleted the Clinton Roadless Rule. This Rule kept the "status quo" on the national forest, preventing anymore destruction or fragmentation of the nations last few wild roadless areas (most of which are on national forest lands).



http://newstandardnews.net/content/index.cfm/items/2901

"Mar. 7 Efforts to control road-building in the nations wilderness areas saw new growth last week with a petition drive and proposed legislation seeking to bar logging and road construction on public lands.

Your privacy is strictly respected. Thursday, a loose coalition of conservationist groups petitioned the administration to reinstate the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation rule, enacted at the end of Bill Clintons presidency. The administrative law tightly limited new road and logging projects on about 58.5 million acres of national forest. The Roadless rule was short lived; the Bush administration and several courts nixed it in the following months.

The groups delivered over 250,000 signatures, hoping to force the Bush administration to reinstate the rule, and demanded a response under the rarely used Administrative Procedures Act. The 1946 law allows citizens to directly request that executive agency decisions be struck down, altered or issued and requires the federal government to respond. The petition has been circulating since last spring."

2. Hopefully her replacement isn't such a goon.
I won't hold my breath though. ;)
