The State of Alaska is trying to exempt the Tongass National Forest from the 2001 National Roadless Rule with an Alaska-Specific Roadless Rule. The Forest Service and United States Department of Agriculture Secretary Perdue have released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Alaska Roadless Rule. The recently released FEIS indicated the prefered alternative as the full exemption (Alternative 6). This would eliminate roadless area protections and could lead to new logging roads and more old-growth clearcut logging on the Tongass.
Together, let’s take action and urge USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue to select the "NO ACTION" alternative as his final decision for the Alaska Roadless Rule and keep the 2001 National Roadless Rule on the Tongass!
