Editorial: U.S. House needs to hear from you on public lands


Yet some folks want to repeal the Roadless Rule and open more national forest lands to new road construction.

House Republicans, led by Rep. Kevin McCarthy – and joined by Reps. Tom McClintock, Dan Lungren and Wally Herger in our region – seek to pass a "Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act" (HR 1581/S 1087), which would "release" roadless areas to patchwork forest-by-forest decision making.
