A U.S. Court District recently issued a permanent injunction against former president Bill Clinton’s decree to place 58.5 million acres of national forests off limits. The overturning of this so-called roadless rule has some property rights advocates, like Marty McElhaney of the American Land Rights Foundation, extremely pleased. Comments McElhaney: “Justice Brimmer who presided in this case noted that ‘The Forest Service rammed through an environmental agenda that itself violates the country’s well-established environmental law.’ In light of the potential harm the roadless rule posed to our national forests due to beetle infestation and forest fires, this decision is most definitely appropriate.”
