Federal Appeals Court rules in Wyoming’s favor on forest management issue

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – Governor Matt Mead said he is pleased the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in Wyoming’s favor in an important case. Wyoming had intervened in a lawsuit that challenged a forest management plan for the Black Hills National Forest. Wyoming supported the U.S. Forest Service’s plan for dealing with bark beetles, and timber management that created jobs and allowed grazing, but environmental groups challenged that plan. The appeals court today upheld the plan.
