This is the site I found as well and the map is interesting, I am just wondering how accurate it is to the current proposal.  It covers much more area than I thought they were looking at, and a patchwork quilt as far as I can see.  

I would like to know who is driving this thing and what they are trying to accomplish.  I'm not for or againt just yet but my first impression is that they have bitten off a little much.

The Forest Service has been closing roads or putting them to bed for years now, primarily because of logging shutdowns. The wilderness areas don't encompass too many roads, therefore I would suspect any beef you may have is or has been with the FS, but who knows, perhaps the propsed area might do the same as what the FS has been doing.

For further reading, I found this written by the Herald: see www.heraldnet.com/Stories/01/7/3/1395948...

(one may have to do an internet search to get it though)

I emailed Senator Murray and asked if the information is on line.  

senator_murray@murray.senate.gov

It will be interesting to see what kind of answer comes back.
