On July 13, Governor Ritter announced that the draft Colorado roadless rule will be released soon and be opened to public comment. The initial draft rule was published by the US Forest Service in July 2008 and public comment closed in October. Since then work on the draft continued. Now the public will have another opportunity to comment on the current version of the draft. It is expected that the draft will be released close to August 1 and that the comment period will extend 60 days from its release. CWF will public our comments on this website and at www.coloradowildlifeactionnetwork.org during August.
