Brown likely to get broader State role in forest preservation



Small groups can make a big difference in California:

"Southern Californians need and want wild areas, wildlife, healthy forests and clean drinking water," said Erin Tobin, a lawyer with Earthjustice, one of the environmental groups that filed the suit. "That's what these national forests have to offer and they will be better protected going forward because of the agreement we've reached."
The State could gain up to 37 new wilderness areas, especially in SoCal, thanks to legal machinations in which the Attorney General and Governor-elect formed a major role.
