When the Sierra Nevada Framework and Forest Plan Amendment processes began to in- terfere with the Herger-Feinstein Recovery Act, QLG members at- tempted to work with the Forest Service, according to the appeal. QLG members also pointed out that the framework is in violation of the Organic Act of 1897, Multiple- Use sustained-Yield Act of 1960, the Resources Planning Act of 1974, the National Forest Management Act of 1976 and its implementing regula- tions, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and its imple- menting regulations, the Adminis- trative Procedure Act, and the Herger-Feinstein Recovery Act. Specific violations involve pro- tecting and increasing old forests, spotted owls, fire and fuels, timber management, riparian area protec- tion, recreation and modeling re- sults. The appeal asked Bosworth to withdraw the Record of Decision and implement the California Spot- ted Owl interim guidelines until a new decision is reached.
