I Can’t Understand This Either
Kerry White with Citizens For Balanced Use sent me this:
The new Forest Service Planning Rule has just been released. I was going through it a bit and came across the following statement under 219.62
Decision memo. A concise written record of the responsible official's decision to implement an action that is categorically excluded from further analysis and documentation in an environmental impact statement (EIS) or environmental assessment (EA), where the action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment, and does not give rise to extraordinary circumstances in which a normally excluded action may have a significant environmental effect.
Kerry said it perfectly:
Can someone please tell me what the hell this says?
If they intend to make this easy and understandable by the general public, I think they are failing miserably.
