States Sue to Bring Back Roadless Rule
California, New Mexico and Oregon have filed a lawsuit against the Bush administration for dismantling restrictions on roadbuilding and logging in nearly 58.5 million acres of United States' last roadless forest wildernesses. This continues the tug of war over what happens to these pristine large roadless forests. The Bush administration has tried devious and underhanded means to open these areas to development. Perhaps the best we can hope for until the Toxic Texan rides off into the sunset is for the issue to be tied up in the courts until he is gone.
