Bush restricts public participation on forest plans

George W. Bush's contempt for the American people knows no limits.

The U.S. Forest Service no longer will give close environmental scrutiny to its long-term plans for America's national forests and grasslands.

It also no longer will allow the public to appeal on long-term plans for those forests,
but instead will invite participation in planning from the outset.

"There is no appeal process, but there is an objection process before a decision is made," said Laura Watts, the forest planner for the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri. "There is still a lot of public involvement."
What did we do to deserve this?

Just think, we have two more years of that fool to prove that it can get worse!
