Off-road-vehicle damage to a proposed wilderness area near Utah's Factory Butte.
Off-road-vehicle damage to a proposed wilderness area near Utah's Factory Butte. The Department of the Interior has refused for years to enforce restrictions on ORV use; now the Bush administration is challenging citizens' rights to demand such protection.

"The Interior Department is in the process of expunging the word 'wilderness' from the dictionary."

— Jim DiPeso, policy director of REP America (Republicans for Environmental Protection), at the fall 2003 conference "Wild Ideas: George W. Bush on Wilderness and Wildlife"
