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

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.
