Help President Bush Restore Access to Forests!
Give Us Our Land Back!
Access for the People!
President Bush and Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman have ALMOST decided
to restore common sense to the Forest Service!
They have ALMOST decided to unlock President Clinton's massive 58 million
acre Forest Service land grab!
They need YOUR HELP. They need to hear from YOU.
Every looneybin leftwing preservationist tree-hugging nutcase outfit in
United States is screaming their heads off! Lock up all the land,
all wilderness is what they say!
YOU need to let Bush and Veneman know that they are doing the RIGHT
THING by restoring recreational and commercial access to the Forest
lands locked up in a last minute land grab by Clinton!
President Bush is doing the job for us so far, he is KEEPING his campaign
promises, and so is Secretary Veneman. They deserve our help. So give
Since March 13, when the 58 million acre lockup was supposed to take
the leftwing preservationists have been yammering away, complaining
the delay. Bush and Veneman need backup! They need to hear from
and to know that restoring access is what the people want!
Here is an excerpt from the Sierra Club's latest newsletter:
"The battle to save America's roadless areas is far from over! In a
blow to our nation's wild forests, President Bush is seeking to
suspend the implementation of the U.S. Forest Service's
Protection Rule - a policy that should have taken affect on
March 13, 2001."
One of our members had it right when he sent me a note:
ATTENTION Private property owners, oil, gas and mineral explorationists,
ranchers, farmers, forestry advocates, recreationists, families, small
business owners, hunters, fishermen and lots of others:
You're in a race!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a team game. Don't allow the Greens to divide and conquer you.
To win, all users must stand together.
Here is part of recent congressional testimony, as reported by Energy and
Wendy Gramm, director of regulatory studies at the George Mason University
Mercatus Center, testified that according to the center's study of Federal
Register pages, increased regulatory activity is not unusual in election
years, jumping an average 29 percent in years when whole administrations
In the closing days of the Clinton administration, however, Gramm said the
"Cinderella effect" was even larger, with Federal Register pages increasing
51 percent during the post-election quarter last year compared to the same
quarters of the three preceding years.
Gramm also faulted the U.S. Forest Service's roadless rule, saying the
agency failed to show that a universal ban on road construction on some
58.5 million acres of National Forest land is "either necessary or
for protecting ... water quality, wildlife and recreation."
And here is more:
The Forest Service has indicated that between 308 million and 1.37 billion
tons of coal would become unavailable under the rule in roadless areas of
the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison national forests in Colorado, and
the Manti-La Sal National Forest in Utah and Colorado, said Greg Shaefer
Arch Coal, which operates several mines that would be affected by the
The Forest Service also estimated the impacts on mineral leasing under the
rule to be a loss of $127.8 million in total income from coal and phosphate
mining, and 3,095 jobs.
ACTION ITEM from the Washington Legal Foundation:
Last Friday, the Washington Legal Foundation filed a formal petition with
the Department of Agriculture to repeal the rule. Suggest you add to your
action item list to have your members contact Ann Veneman and to "approve
the Washington Legal Foundation's petition to repeal the Roadless Rule."
This is a great idea. Definitely contact Agriculture Secretary Veneman,
President Bush, and your Senators and Congressman and ask them to approve
the Washington Legal Foundation's petition to repeal the Roadless Land Grab
and restore access to the public's public lands.
Make sure you send a message to both your Senators and Congressman. The
Greens are all over them trying to undercut the President and Secretary
THESE ARE THE CRITICAL ACTION ITEMS
