Daily Sun News: Tired of watching our forest officials back down when bullied by extremists
by Roger Harnack Daily Sun News
It seems like every time an environmental group threatens the U.S. Forest Service, those officials being paid by our tax dollars back down.
Such was the case again last month in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. The agency that manages our publicly owned land from Naches to the U.S.-Canada border reversed its decision to allow “wheeled” all-terrain vehicles on several forest roads open to other vehicles…
Those groups – including Kittitas Audubon, Sierra Club and Alpine Lakes Protection Society – filed suit June 30 claiming the U.S. Forest Service failed to follow the National Environmental Policy Act when it allowed “wheeled” ATVs.
