The U.S. Congress has until May 12 to offer a Joint Resolution of Disapproval that could overturn the Roadless Area Conservation Policy-the regulatory ruling that protects 58.5 million acres of undisturbed national forest land across the U.S. from road building and commercial logging. Rule opponents may use the previously untested Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Act to do so, making it the most immediate threat to roadless protection. All they need to overturn the rule is a majority vote in both the House and the Senate. At risk are our pristine forests across the country, from Alaska, to Idaho, to Florida, Tennessee, Pennsylvania-39 states in all.
What you can do: Contact both our Senators and your U.S. Representative and urge them to oppose efforts to overturn the Roadless Area Conservation Policy. Encourage your friends to contact them, too.
