Roadless Rule Death

"If a governor proposes no changes, the land would be managed according to 10-year guidelines set by each national forest. Under those existing guidelines, nearly 60% of the 58.5 million acres of roadless forest could be immediately opened for development. The remainder is guaranteed protection until a forest's guidelines are revised," reports USA Today.

They'll open it to more roadbuilding and unless a governor decides to keep it protected. There's almost no chance of this given the persuasion of the governors. Oregon and Montana may be exceptions. We'll see.
