The timing for IMBA's Lake Tahoe Trails Conference (Oct. 1-3 at the Montbleau Casino) is well suited for mountain bikers who hope to influence the long-term plans that will shape trail development in the U.S. Forest Service's Tahoe Basin Unit. According to the Forest Service website, a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be issued this fall, and the office plans to receive comments from the public until Dec. 31. Planning efforts like the one the Tahoe Basin is conducting commonly shape how individual Forests handle trail development and recreation for a decade or longer.
The U.S. Senate is poised to consider oil spill/energy legislation that will fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and address oil spill issues in the Gulf of Mexico. Last Tuesday in the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid and others introduced the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Accountability Act (S. 3663), which among other provisions includes full and dedicated funding for the LWCF.
