Forest Service Chief to Control Road Building

From Times Wire Reports

Forest Service Chief Dale Bosworth is assuming authority over road building and logging in a third of national forests while the Bush administration revises a Clinton-era ban on those activities.

In a memo, Bosworth instructed officials overseeing forests to consider the long-term protection of roadless areas as they make scheduled revisions to the forests' management plans. Until the work is done, Bosworth will oversee timber harvests and roadless areas.
