Roadless Rule Restored
September 20, 2006 11:58 AM Subscribe
Judge overturns Bush petition plan
on roadless forests and reinstates the Clinton Roadless Rule
. The policy gave governors an
18-month interim period to submit petitions to protect their national
roadless areas, but the Forest Service sold timber rights to two
tracts of land in Oregon (which have already been logged
) before Gov.
Kulongoski could submit his petition.
