The national forests are being managed under rules made in 1982 and a lot has changed since then. The rules are now under revision. Some conservation groups want president Obama to push for stronger rules to protect wildlife, fish, public access and drinking water sources. Jane Danowitz with the Pew Environment Group says the new rules will be a blueprint for how national forests should be managed: "It means that, where activities such as logging should take place, it should be done in a sustainable manner. And where valuable fish and wildlife habitat should be protected, the government needs to be required to take steps to do so." The groups have signed a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack describing their "holiday wishes" for stronger rules and a commitment to scientific review in the new forest management policies. The first draft for public comment is expected as early as January.
