There has been a lot of thread revivals today for little or no apparent reason.

And for some unknown reason, you felt compelled to revive a three year old thread to tell us that!
Thanks, I guess...

In the pre-independence era, the Congress was ideologically divided into two groups, moderate and activist. The moderates were more educated and wanted to win people's faith to lead the nation to independence without fighting; the activists, on the other hand, favoured more revolutionary tactics and sought to make the INC a paramillatary group.

Actually, there are two bills here. The recent wilderness restoration activities are implementing the California Desert Protection Act passed in 1994. A new bill, S.2921, the California Desert Protection Act - 2010 (Feinstein), was introduced last December and currently has the provisions for Inyo County to access borrow pits on the Saline Valley road (including at least one on the north pass section). This bill has not passed in Congress but awaits its first committee hearing in the Senate.

Congress passed an addition to the Desert Act that was the reason for all the "wilderness restoration" activity that's been going on recently. Mostly it just closes all of us semi-mobile ancients out of the nice little spots we would have liked to keep accessible. But it did include a provision for the County Road Dept. to have access to the burrow pits on the Saline Valley Rd. (south). This is something SPA has been lobbying for so it will benefit us as far as road maintenance goes. A minor victory amid major losses.
