Forest giveaway

Another one from OPB: Forest

"The rule exempts timber sales from a process called consultation if a Forest Service or BLM biologist determines the logging won't hurt threatened wildlife.

Before the regulatory change, timber sales had to pass the scrutiny of biologists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or NOAA Fisheries and on many occasions the sales were blocked."

Next thing you know, "streamlining" will involve outsourcing FS or BLM biologists to companies like Enviroscientists.
