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.
