Reply To: 1010

Dear Mr. Keaton,

Thank you for your prompt rely to my inquiries about the status of the proposed rule to review 36 CFR 251, which governs special uses of the National Forest System.

My particular interest is to learn of the process which resulted in ex-Secretary Madigan's grant of exemption for the proposed rule from ex-President Bush's moratorium on proposed rules.

Specifically, I would appreciate copies of the communiques which brought the issue of exempting this proposed rule to ex-Secretary Madigan's attention -- as well as any supplemental correspondence between the ex-Secretary's office and the officials who proposed an exemption from the moratorium -- and the ex-Secretary's written authorization of exemption.

This request is made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, and the information requested will not be used for commercial purposes, but will be used entirely for educating others interested in this particular issue.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
