Federal Judge Tosses Out Forest Rules
Associated Press

A federal judge on Friday tossed out new Bush administration rules that gave national forest managers more discretion to approve logging and other commercial projects without lengthy environmental reviews.

U.S. District Court Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled that the government failed to adequately consider the effects the rules would have on the environment and neglected to properly gather public comment on the issue.

Hamilton said in her written decision that the government couldn't institute the new rules until proper environmental reviews were conducted, but she declined to specify how the nation's 155 national forests should be managed until then.

The ruling overturns a key administration environmental rule that governs all 192 million acres of national forests and stops plans such as logging and mining in the parks.

Go, Phyllis

What a bunch of *&^(*^(s those 'administration' types are to think that the Earth is just here for their buddies' profit and to line their grease pockets.

They cut off every possible good item that has ever come up so that they can destroy everything.

Go Phyllis
