Watchdog group sues to overturn expanded e-bike access in NPs; also aims at "acting" appointees

A lawsuit filed to overturn the Interior Department's move to expand e-Bike access in the National Park System also takes aim at the Trump administration's preference for appointing "acting" officials rather than submitting nominees for Senate confirmation.

The 31-page filing, made by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility with three other conservation groups, also charges that an advisory committee comprised of industry friendly representatives met regularly with Interior officials to lobby for the increased access and helped develop the new policy.
