27 Days Left for Public Input on Public Land Sales
Update: Obviously, we no longer have 27 days left; comments are due by March 30th. But if I change the title now, previous hyperlinks won't work. apologies.
Let them know our natural treasures are not for sale.
We are now in the 30-day comment period for this proposal. It is essential that you take a few minutes to write your own reasons why this proposal should be scrapped. Even if it is short, your comments will be entered into the Federal record and taken seriously. Form letters are given less weight than your own carefully worded letter. Postal mail is better than e-mail.
[Comments on the proposed list must be received by March 30 and may be sent by e-mail to SRS_Land_Sales@fs.fed.us. Written comments may be sent to: USDA Forest Service, SRS Comments, Lands 4S, 1400 Independence Ave., SW, Mailstop 1124, Washington, DC, 20250-0003. Send faxed comments to (202) 205-1604.]
At a minimum, please send email to SRS_Land_Sales@fs.fed.us with the subject "SRS Comments". Write a few sentences asking that this entire scheme be scrapped. Include your name and address at the bottom.
The fact that Bush has limited comments to only 30 days indicates he plans to try to push this through. And I know that some in the GOP have even come out against this (good), but it is very important that we invoke a thunderstorm of comments against this... it might make them think twice the next time they attack our public lands!
Take 1 minute to write to your congressional reps to stop this nonsense.
