  1. First... the good news: Arizona Federal judge sides with BLM on management of Arizona Strip lands http://cronkitenewsonline.com/federal-judge-sides-with-blm-on-management-of-az-str -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, the bad news: Montana Setback in Lewis and Clark National Forest Lawsuit In April of 2010 BRC, the Motorcycle Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America and Montana user groups were celebrating a landmark legal victory in a lawsuit challenging the Lewis and Clark National Forest (LCNF) 2007 Travel Management Plan. A federal court in Montana agreed with our claims that the LCNF violated federal law. The central theme of the decision was that the Plan was more restrictive than any of the alternatives vetted during the public review process. The Court found that the Forest's final decision "reduced total motorized routes by nearly thirty percent from the most restrictive Draft EIS alternative. It also closed several routes which were not identified for closure in any DEIS alternative." The Court also struck down the agency's treatment of off-route travel for dispersed camping. The Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) portrayed as an element common to every alternative a 300-foot-wide allowance, which was already in place in the Forest since 2001. In the Final EIS, and thus without the opportunity for further public input, this was altered to a "vehicle-plus-trailer-length" allowance in every alternative. Sadly, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has reversed that ruling finding the U.S. Forest Service did not violate the law when it strayed beyond the range of alternatives proposed in a draft environmental impact statement, as long as the plan differed in only minor ways from one of the alternatives and was “somewhere within” the range of alternatives proposed. I don't want to say too much about this because BRC and the other recreational groups are evaluating our options. Needless to say... stay tuned!

  2. BRC NATIONAL WILDERNESS LEGISLATION UPDATE – UPDATE Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber, Last Thursday we blasted a Wilderness Legislation Update and reported on Wilderness bills in Idaho, South Dakota, Colorado, Montana and Utah. In the past week there has been quite a bit of news on each of these bills so we thought we'd send another update. Call it a Wilderness Legislation Update – Update!* We also wanted to send a heartfelt THANKS to everyone who took the time and effort to contact legislators on these bills. Judging by the news in Idaho, your phone calls and email are having a positive effect. I'll repeat our a disclaimer that this update won't cover all of the various wilderness and other land use bills pending. If we miss any bills in your area, we apologize and ask that you shoot us an email and we'll include it in our next update. Brian Hawthorne

S. 3294 – CIEDRA - Central Idaho Economic Development and Recreation Act
The U.S. Senate Subcommittee for Public Lands and Forests heard testimony June 16, 2010 on Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson's Boulder/White Clouds Wilderness bill. Known as CIEDRA, this legislation would close approximately 80 miles of mountain bike single track and tens of thousands of acres of prized high mountain snowmobiling. Apparently, the Subcommittee testimony raised serious questions...

Wilderness bill rides momentum after hearing, but opposition looms 
Idaho Mountain Express: CIEDRA deemed a ‘tough sell’ - June 18, 2010 Adena Cook, BRC's Senior Policy Adviser, wanted everyone to read Idaho Governor Butch Otter's letter opposing CIEDRA.* Adena reports that Otter's letter combined with calls and emails from the OHV and snowmobile community is making an impression on Senator Risch. She said “Your e-mails and letters ARE making a difference. They have REAL IMPACT.” So much impact that Idaho's Wilderness Advocacy Media, in the form of Rocky Barker, environment and natural resource writer for the Idaho Statesman, seems to be doing their level best to spin the opposition to Rep. Simpson's bill. Barker has posted two blurbs on his blog: Motorized recreation activist flexes muscles

Other collaborative processes threatened if Simpson's bill goes down | Voices.IdahoStatesman.com Speaking of Sandra Mitchell...
Sandra Mitchell sent a email update to members of Idaho Recreation Council and Idaho State Snowmobile Association reacting to the news that Senator Risch is reconsidering his support of that bill:**** **** "We have waited a long time to hear something like this and I know there were times when we all felt as if CIEDRA was a done deal. Thanks to your hard work and that magnificent *letter from the Governor; it isn’t over. **** Again, I am going to ask you do something and that is to contact Senator Risch and say thanks for his comments in the Statesman and for understanding that this CIEDRA bill doesn’t work for the people or the land. I promise you, by acting you will make a difference. ***** We have come so far and worked so hard, we cannot give up and numbers still matter. It is important that the Senator know folks care and are paying attention." SOUTH DAKOTA

The last updated mentioned SUWA's play to encourage Colorado Senator Mark Udall to become the Western Champion of their unfathomably massive 10 million acre BLM Wilderness bill.
Udall may lead regional wilderness issue 
Udall may lead regional wilderness issue | GJSentinel.com But we didn't mention any news on Senator Bennett's county-by-county Land Use Legislation process.* Both San Juan and Emery Counties are considering land use bills that would include Wilderness, as well as other recreation friendly designations. Emery County's Public Lands Council is currently putting pen to paper and should have a draft bill ready in coming months. Draft maps and other information is posted on the County's website: Emery County Land Use Plan Information Utah's National Public Radio interviewed Senator Bennett who repeated the probably accurate threat that the Obama Administration may take unilateral action (Monument designation) should the county-by-county process fail. 
Wilderness After Senator Bennett 
KUER: Wilderness After Senator Bennett (2010-06-21) SUWA has an interesting spin on their website:
An Emery County Update
An Emery County Update - Redrock Headlines **** "Unfortunately county officials have drawn heavy criticism from local wilderness opponents for working too closely with SUWA, whose interests they see at odds with theirs. This has dampened any early optimism." Doesn't it seem*like they are setting the stage to blame their opposition to Emery County's bill on “local wilderness opponents.” Maybe not. Its too easy to assign nefarious motives to a group like SUWA. And, in all honesty, it is perfectly reasonable to assume that any legislation that would be palatable to the elected officials and the citizens of Emery County would be in significant conflict with SUWA's 10 million acre behemoth wilderness bill. Whatever spin SUWA tries to put on it, the question will boil down to whether or not SUWA will want to take what wilderness it can get via Bennett's process, or continue its past history of killing the bills in Washington D.C. MEANWHILE....
SUWA Negotiates with Oil and Gas Industry to Close Areas to Public??
According to Tom McCourt, a columnist for the Sun Advocate in Price, Utah, SUWA has struck a deal with the Bill Barrett Corporation that would allow Barrett to develop their oil and gas operation in Carbon County as long as the company and the County agrees to close roads to public access.
