Risch roadless plan accepted by feds

Gov. Jim Risch’s proposal on how to manage 9.3 million acres of roadless federal lands in Idaho has been approved by the U.S. secretary of agriculture, and will proceed with environmental analysis and public comment as part of formal rulemaking. “It is not often that the federal government moves with such speed, but I am very pleased that they have given quick approval to move forward,” Risch said. “The management plan is a common sense approach that benefits the land and the public.”
