BLUERIBBON COALITION NATIONAL ACTION ALERT
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED
SUPPORT REQUESTS TO EXTEND COMMENT DEADLINE FOR US FOREST
SERVICE PLANNING RULE
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
BRC, along with multiple-use stakeholders, local governments and
numerous recreational advocacy organizations, has asked the
Department of Agriculture to provide an additional 90 days to
review and comment on the Draft Planning Rule for the U.S.
The new planning regulations are extremely complex and include
new, untested provisions for habitat planning and monitoring. In
addition, the agency has, sadly, chosen to emphasize
preservation over multiple use and recreation. BRC is working
with a wide range of stakeholders in efforts to bring the agency
back to its multiple use mandate and the groups have
collectively requested an extension of the comment period. Read
We need your help.
Please help us by sending a quick message to Harris Sherman,
USDA Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment in
support of our extension request.
In order to assist you, BRC has activated our Rapid Response
Center. Simply click

Thank you in advance for your involvement. As always, please
call or email with questions.
