Grazing regulations thrown out

On Friday June 8, 2007 Chief Judge B. Lynn Winmill of the Federal Court for the District of Idaho awarded Western Watersheds Project a stunning victory in an order overturning the Bush Administration’s grazing regulations for the Bureau of Land Management affecting over 160,000,000 acres of public lands in 11 western states.

WWP said, “The grazing regulations that have now been found illegal in this Court decision under three major federal statutes (NEPA, FLPMA and the Endangered Species Act) would have effectively returned the management of public lands managed by the BLM to the days before the Bruce Babbitt regulatory changes of 1995 that final broke open the stranglehold of good-old-boy ranchers on public lands.”
