    The 2018 Senate Interior Appropriations bill would eliminate protection for roadless areas in Southeast Alaska’s Tongass National Forest (our nation’s largest national forest) and the spectacular Chugach National Forest near Anchorage. The 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule, one of the most popular and successful conservation measures in US history, protected the 58.5 million acres of America’s roadless national forests from logging and roadbuilding.
