What's the issue here?

Is there something they're proposing that would endanger areas used for hiking?

"Is there something they're proposing that would endanger areas used for hiking?"

Always!

And actually, right now, as in THIS WEEK, there are some huge battles going on.

I follow the alerts from the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. They're pretty darn good at keeping me up to date. The focus is on a specific region, but often the issues apply broadly.

Some interesting stuff in there regarding the coarse/fine filter approach for species monitoring, extent of scientific review required, amount of discretion given to the "responsible official(s)".
