Bush exempts Tongass Forest from Roadless Rule

Date : 24th December 2003, Source : ENS



WASHINGTON, DC, December 24, 2003 (ENS) - Alaska's Tongass National Forest will no longer be afforded protection under the roadless rule, the Bush administration announced late Tuesday. The decision removes some nine million acres of the Tongass from protection under the Clinton era regulation and immediately opens some 300,000 acres to road building and logging.
