Pacific Legal Foundation is challenging the U.S. Forest Service’s closure of roads and trails in the Plumas National Forest under the 2005 Travel Management Rule, which will disproportionately impact motorized access by disabled citizens. In a new lawsuit, filed on behalf of individuals, including disabled citizen Amy Granat, as well as off-road recreational organizations and local governments, PLF argues the Service violated the National Environmental Policy Act by failing to adequately analyze the impacts on the human environment of prohibiting motorized travel on thousands of formerly accessible trails and roads within the 1.1 million-acre Plumas National Forest.
As PLF's lawsuit drives home, Obamacare is unconstitutional because it was launched in the Senate, not the House. The Constitution's "Origination Clause" (Article I, Section 7) requires that taxes start in the House, to keep the taxing power close to the people. PLF's lawsuit against Obamacare was filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and awaits a hearing scheduled in Feb-2014.
