Senator Crapo's Office Response to Forest Service Lawlessness

This is a recent response from Senator Crapo's office to the lawless manner in which the Forest Service closed Sugar Creek Road.

Signs the Forest Service posted on Sugar Creek Road. The Forest Service offered ZERO public comment periods required by NEPA and other federal laws before closing Sugar Creek Road. 

Follow up from Senator Crapo regarding the Forest Service's unlawful closure of Sugar Creek Road:

Mr. Amos:

We hope this e-mail finds you well. Upon submitting a congressional inquiry to the U.S. Forest Service on your behalf we learned that there is an open Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigation based on a hotline complaint registered with the agency earlier in the year. The investigation includes Sugar Creek Road. On the advice of the Senate Ethics Committee, once a matter reaches this level it is not appropriate for a United States Senator to intervene.

Once the investigation is completed, you may certainly contact us again with any further thoughts or concerns. You may also contact us should you need assistance on another federal matter.

Senator Crapo sends his best regards.
