Happening now -In public meeting today, USFS touts “open transparent process” then decision maker James Pena says “the resolution on those issues (196 out of 200 formal objections) will come out when I sign the decision. (The negative impacts on local communities) is not for discussion today.”

Attending an Objection Resolution meeting regarding Idaho Panhandle National Forest today… Interested parties and objectors were told we could participate in today’s meeting by phone. An hour and a half after everyone present was introduced, those of us calling in have still not been acknowledged, recognized, or allowed to speak or ask questions.

Just one more example of why management of our public lands needs to be transferred to the states so representatives accountable to the people who live here are given responsibility for land management decisions.
