How far out of phase are the politics of Washington, DC when you have to pass a law to force the Feds to listen to locals? How far away are we from the sovereign state when the Feds have more say on local issues than do the LOCALS? 

Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon says he’ll do just that. He announced it on Twitter:

No Title

Today, I’ll announce legislation to require Feds to listen to local citizens regarding forest roads and trails.

The environmentalists, EPA and US Forestry have more say about what happens in Oregon forests than do the locals. It’s a travesty.
