The article reports on several revisions to the National Forest Management Act (NFMA) of 1976 that have been criticized. The U.S. Forest Service has revised the NFMA in 2005 and 2008. These revisions have been controversial because many conservation groups argued that the new rule still does not live up to the protective standards of the pre-2005 regulations.
