ANOTHER "LAND-GRABBING" ISSUE

   In a round-about way this regulation is very important to our hobbies.  With Western states and counties looking to stake claims to federal rights-of-way in protected areas, Sen. Joe Lieberman ( D-Conn. ) last week asked the Interior Department to release to the public information about rights-of-way claims and how it plans to evaluate them.
   In a 20-page letter to Interior Secretary Gale Norton, Lieberman accused Interior officials of attempting to evade public scrutiny on the issue.  Lieberman's letter:  http://www.senate.gov/~gov_affairs/presslinks/070203nortonltr.pdf 

CONCLUSION

  DONE !!   Whew !!  My typing finger sure got a work-out this issue !!  I'll see you in two weeks--- August 15th---from somewhere between Minnesota & Utah !!
