I have been reading the Forest Service Planning Rule documents and I am totally blown away by the bureaucratic male cow pies this document contains. It is really a stifling document to read, yet everyone who enjoys visiting our forest needs to read it and understand what the Forest Service and the NGO environmentalists are up to in creating these new planning rules. The Rules are to guide and control the actions of regional Forest Service planners in developing public use plans. These new planning rules will apply to the Tahoe National Forest and other nation forests in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
These new rules will restrict your use of the National Forest we all love and enjoy. Do not ignore them. My colum concludes:
You can down load a copy of the planning rules here (www.fs.usda.gov/planningrule). And, then comment here (http://www.regulations.gov) before 16 May 2011, which is the closing date for all comments.
