Enviros sue to reverse weakening of USFS handling of NEPA rules

A coalition of environmental groups is suing the U.S. Forest Service over a rule that weakens environmental analysis of many of its plans and excludes a number of actions from scientific review or community input.


The rule, finalized in November, allows the service to use a number of exemptions to sidestep requirements of the bedrock National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), something critics say will speed approval of logging, roads and pipelines on Forest Service land.
