Alaska Roadless Rule - status

Message from Alaska USFS to those that sent in comments:


It is with humble gratitude that I thank you for your participation in the Alaska Roadless Rule draft environmental impact statement 60-day comment period that was completed late last year. Your voices were shared through traditional news media and via social media during our fall public information meetings and subsistence hearings.We also heard from you through the written comments you mailed, faxed, emailed and uploaded to our project website.As a reminder, your comments are used to inform the responsible official, as we move through the process before a final decision is made.A final environmental impact statement and the final decision on an Alaska Roadless Rule, which will be made by Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, are both expected in summer 2020.Until then, please visit the project website for updated information as it becomes available.
