Bush Administration Cedes Comment Period Extension!

Let's Get A Million Comments In for Roadless Protection

Comment Packet and National Events



The Bush administration has extended the comment period on the new 
Roadless Rule to November 15, 2004!  We have set an ambitious goal of 
1 million comments in order to send a clear and powerful message that 
we will not tolerate the Bush administration giving our National 
Forests away to the timber, mining and oil industries.  Keep writing 
to help reach this goal!!!



Please go to the 
<http://www.americanlands.org/issues.php?subsubNo=1085518143&article=1092416869>
American 
Lands Roadless Comment Drive Organizing Action Tool-Kit to view 
sample comment letters, sample letters to the editor, a sample 
editorial board memo, an analysis of the new Bush roadless rule and a 
link to the new rule.  We need to keep the pressure on the 
administration by generating more comments and media attention on the 
new Roadless Rule.



On September 14, 2004 there are going to be a number of events across 
the country in order to demonstrate that the American public 
resoundingly rejects the Bush administration's efforts to repeal the 
2001 Roadless Rule.  If you haven't already linked into these 
activities (information below) please consider doing so.  If you are 
not participating in a local event in your area consider writing a 
letter to the editor on September 14, 2004 expressing your 
disappointment with the Bush administration for attempting to repeal 
the Roadless Rule.



The extension of the comment period past the national election is a 
clear indication that the roadless issue has become a problem for the 
Bush administration.  On September 14th events are being organized in 
DC and around the country to continue to call attention to the Bush 
administration's plan to log our remaining roadless wild forests. 
Groups are encouraged to participate in events that are already being 
planned as well as organize other press events or rallies to 
demonstrate broad public support for roadless area protection, 
calling attention to your states' contribution to the goal of 1 
million comments.



Events are being planned in the following states: AZ, TX, WV, TN, FL, 
NM, NV, NH, ME, PA, IL, MI, MN, AR, NC, ID, CO, OR, WA, WI, NJ, CA, 
LA, VA, AK.
