Scientists Oppose House Bill to Short Circuit Environmental Review of Logging Projects

More than 250 scientists signed a letter (pdf) opposing a bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 2647) that would expedite logging on public lands by allowing the Forest Service to avoid the environmental review requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). NEPA has often been referred to as the magna carta of U.S. environmental law.

Phil Taylor of E&E reported on the letter and House bill on September 25 in E&E Daily.
