The article discusses the issues related under the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. Bush has pursued the idea of selling public lands to fill federal coffers but the Western politicians blocked the proposal and led to burgeoning deficit. Politician Paul Hoffman revised the National Park Service management policy to weaken environmental protection. The Endangered Species Act was redeveloped to make the Act more industry-friendly.
