Roadless Rule Repealed

The Bush Administration is trying to whittle away the Roadless Rule and the public’s resolve.  We need to continue to make our voices heard until roadless areas are permanently protected from the logging industry. 

Be one of the million comments needed to fight this proposal. 

Fill out a comment form on-line or write a letter to the Forest Service.   Say you disagree with the new proposal, and want the Administration to uphold and enforce the Roadless Area Conservation Rule of 2001 — as is.

COMMENT PERIOD WAS EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 15TH.

Letters should be sent to:

Content Analysis Team
Attn: Roadless State Petitions
USDA Forest Service
P.O. Box 221090,
Salt Lake City, UT 84122

Send a copy to your Governor, or write a separate letter urging him or her to voice opposition to the Administration’s proposal
