MONTANA - Beaverhead-Deerlodge NF Seeks Comments Draft SEIS

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest (NF) has released a draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) to the 2009 Forest Plan and is seeking public comment. The 2009 Forest Plan provides management direction for activities on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. In a May 24, 2013 Order, the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana directed the Forest Service to supplement the 2009 Corrected FEIS for the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest Plan to explain or support its decision to exclude temporary roads from the Forest Plan road density goals. This Draft Supplemental EIS evaluates the effect of not including temporary roads in Open Motorized Road and Trail Density goals on Forest Plan EIS issues.

The Draft SEIS is available online at: www.fs.usda.gov/detail/bdnf/landmanagement/planning/?cid=stelprdb5427140. Click on "Draft SEIS for BDNF Plan."  This is not a large document and should readily download to most computers. The 90-day comment period began March 14, 2014, and ends June 12, 2014. Written comments may be submitted to Melany Glossa, Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, 420 Barrett Street, Dillon, MT. Electronic comments may be submitted by email in word (.doc or .docx), rich text format (.rtf), text (.txt), and hypertext markup language (.html) to: comments-northern-beaverhead-deerlodge@fs.fed.us. Please include "BDNF Forest Plan Draft SEIS" in the subject line of emails for comments submitted electronically.

If you have questions or need additional information about the Draft SEIS, contact Jan Bowey at (406) 842-5432.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

Senate Introduces Legislation to Ensure Appropriate Safety Standards for Side-by
On February 18, 2015, BRC's Don Amador, a SXS enthusiast, asked you to contact Congress because federal regulators were trying to impose their "street-oriented" view on SXS users and the industry by proposing a Rule which could have devastated SXS recreation. BRC asked you to send an email urging your representative to cosponsor H.R. 999 -- The ROV In-Depth Examination Act. Your response was awesome!  That House bill has gained a lot of support.
