    ROADLESS UPDATE (May 1, 2000) & DEIS ORDER FORM

    According to my latest information, the President's Roadless Area
    Protection Draft Environmental Impact Statement
    (DEIS) and proposed rulemaking is being printed and will be released on May
    11. The Forest Service is scheduling
    two hearings for each national forest, starting as early as May 17. The
    first hearing will be an informational meeting
    about the content of the DEIS. The second meeting will "allow" citizens to
    submit official public comment.

    The BRC and others are trying to get advanced copies of the schedules for
    these meetings. As usual it appears the
    Sierra Club already has this schedule. The BRC will get the schedule out
    just as soon as well obtain it.

    As you may know, the Sierra Club et al are asking their members to turn out
    in large numbers to these meetings.
    They have asked their members to also wear buttons, labels (it appears they
    did not like our
    "Access for ALL" labels) , and bring posters.

    Just as before, I expect the multiple-use recreation and resource community
    to show up en masse.

    Also, since Clinton is forcing this roadless agenda down our throats...I
    think that everyone who enjoys
    access to our forests should mail in the following form asking for both the
    CD and print version of the
    full Roadless DEIS. You must request this report in writing from the
    Forest Service.

    I am encouraging all who read this note to cut-n-paste this request and
    mail it in ASAP.

    Thanks in advance for your interest in this subject.

    Don Amador, BRC

    I guess that people just don't want to get involved, when there's no place left to wheel they'll bitch because they've got thousands of dollars in their trail rigs and all they can do is watch them rust away in the back yard because they can't use them or sell them because they won't be of any importance to anyone else either.
    yes, send it to rocky Mt address
