For Immediate Release May 9, 2000


The plan proposed today by Secretary Glickman to prohibit road building in roadless areas of our national forests is an important step toward my goal of lasting protection for these priceless lands. These pristine areas are some of the last wild places in America, and I am firmly committed to preserving them for future generations. I commend the Forest Service for its extraordinary effort in developing this proposal and providing the American people with every opportunity to help shape it. I encourage members of the public, and all those with a stake in the future of our national forests, to carefully review this proposal and make their voices heard as the Forest Service continues to develop and refine this historic initiative.
