Freudenthal Asks About Roadless Changes
Cheyenne, Wy – The Governor doubts that states really will have any say over whether federal lands should remain road less, so he is asking the U-S Department of Agriculture to answer that question once and for all. Governor Dave Freudenthal says the Bush administration plan to allow states to petition to have areas remain road less does not appear to have any teeth. So he asked the Department of Agriculture to address that.
Freudenthal says it will be a costly exercise every time the state files a petition and right now Wyoming would have to pay for all those costs. So if it turns out to be a waste of time, they may look at other options.
