WASHINGTON – League of Conservation Voters Legislative Representative Alex Taurel issued the following statement on the release of the Obama Administration’s new Forest Planning Rule, which will govern how our national forests are managed for decades to come:

“We applaud the Obama administration for its commitment to the health of our National Forests that’s reflected in this new rule.  We are particularly pleased that the rule ensures that sound science will guide how the Forest Service will manage the unparalleled landscapes, water resources, and wildlife they are entrusted to protect.  We look forward to working with the administration to ensure that the conservation vision embodied in these standards will be implemented in such a way that our National Forests thrive for generations to come.”
