Colorado vs. federal roadless rules: 3 letters

These letters on are in reply to the Post's endorsement of the Colorado Roadless Plan in favor of the federal 2001 Roadless Plan.

Your editorial voiced support of the Colorado roadless rule that currently is being finalized. The Post mentioned that exceptions in the draft rule would allow for oil and gas development and coal exploration in certain areas. What it failed to address is that the Currant Creek roadless area would be opened to coal mining under that draft.
