ROADLESS AREA CONSERVATION RULE HAS BEEN FROZEN UNTIL MAY, 2001

The wasteful and dangerous Roadless Area Conservation Rule created by former President Clinton has been frozen by President George W. Bush for an additional 60 days, until May 13, 2001.

This tremendously encouraging news comes from Carla Boucher, one of the nation's premier authorities on the Roadless Rule and its dangerous effects to forest health, local economies, and public access. "This 60 day postponement on the effective date
of the final rule is a great sign that President Bush has the uncanny ability to balance forest health issues with the principles of democracy and fair play that have made America the great country that it is", stated Boucher, author of the extremely popular Public Land Owner's Manual.

The President has requested that all regulations (rules) which have been published in the Federal Register but have not yet taken effect be temporarily postponed for 60 days until a department or agency head appointed by President Bush reviews and approves the regulatory action, explained Boucher, the attorney and legislative advocate for United Four Wheel Drive Associations. "United has been concerned throughout the rulemaking by the fact that it has cost Americans over $9 million to develop a rule that will place over 90,000 additional acres at risk of catastrophic wildfire, untold loss of species and habitat, and cost an additional $52.4 million in fire suppression efforts, all in the name of alleged 'conservation' - with friends like that, what species needs enemies", lamented Boucher, from her law office in Chesapeake, Virginia. "United is dedicated to the conservation of public and private lands for the further use and enjoyment of others and this 60 day freeze on the Roadless Rule is good news for forest health and conservation", concluded Boucher, who has been suggested for possible positions within the new Bush administration.

Wow imagine that taking the time to look into an issue instead of just thinking of yourself.
