AMERICAN FOREST RESOURCE ALLIANCE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESPONDS TO CRITICAL HABITAT DESIGNATION

 AMERICAN FOREST RESOURCE ALLIANCE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
 RESPONDS TO CRITICAL HABITAT DESIGNATION
 PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued today by Mark Rey, American Forest Resource Alliance executive director, in response to reports of the final critical habitat designation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:
 "Today's national record critical habitat designation constitutes a low-tech lynching of an entire region by an out-of-control federal agency.
 "The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will not be able to conveniently place large blue dots over the faces of the hundreds of thousands of forest families, school children and recipients of government services who will be adversely impacted by this unfortunate decision.
 "On one hand, the Bush Administration promises to take every reasonable step necessary to rescue the nation from the economic doldrums. But on the other hand, one Administration agency cavalierly contributes to the same economic misery the White House deplores.
 "It has never been so clear and undeniable that Congress must step in and pass a comprehensive solution to the economic crisis in the three-state region.
 "Passage of the balanced Forests and Families Protection Act (S 1156, HR 2463) represents the solution to this question. The alternative is to continue to subject the entire region to the dictatorial intentions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service."
