Bush administration moves to sell national forest land

The Bush administration will unveil a proposal Friday to sell up to 200,000 acres of national forest land in isolated parcels ranging from a quarter of an acre to 200 acres, much of it in California. The sale is part of a National Forest Service plan to raise $800 million over the next five years to pay for rural schools in 41 states, offsetting shrinking revenues from sale of timber from national forests. The Bureau of Land Management also plans to sell federal lands to raise an estimated $182 million over five years.
