"News & Issues" piece on the final draft of a new resource policy that would eliminate wilderness areas in state parks and lands. The fight over wilderness in committee was between environmental organizations on one side and motorized recreation, sporting and forest industry interests on the other. From the beginning the Bureau of Parks and Lands was skeptical of the need for wilderness, and agency director Tom Morrison confirmed recently that there was no one on his staff involved in the policy process who supported wilderness areas. A public meeting on the proposed management document is set for June 27 in Bangor.
