What the Bush administration May Tell YouMany Heritage Forest Campaign members have informed us that the Bush administration is telling callers that they cannot do anything because of a ruling by a Wyoming judge last summer. It is true that Judge Brimmer of Wyoming issued an injunction for the roadless rule. However, the Bush administration failed to appeal this decision to the higher court and even filed a brief that supports prohibiting citizens from appealing the injunction.
Despite the administration's attempt to stop the conservation community, an appeal has been filed with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. For more information please see our analysis of the roadless rule legal challenges.
Thank you for taking the time to help protect our roadless forests.
