County to feds: They're our roads!

Supervisors vote to reopen routes hit by BLM closure
clipped from

There already have been fights with Washington over health care, gun laws, the Tenth Amendment and other issues. Now a new perspective to America's rebellion against the power of the federal bureaucracy has been added with a vote by supervisors in one California county to reopen county roads that had been shut down by the Bureau of Land Management.

By a 4-0 vote, the board ordered reopened about 25 miles of county roads that are within an area closed off to the public by the BLM in a 2008 decision.

Don Amador, western representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said the board "earned a place in the history books for taking a stand against a federal bureaucracy that has proposed a closure of historic proportions in their county."

"Today's vote to reopen the roads for street-legal vehicles should be a clear signal to the BLM that their effort to make the Hollister Field Office a 'Human Free Zone' is going to be challenged."
