Posted Tue Feb 26 2008: from Jackson Hole Star Tribune:
Embattled ag undersecretary makes no apologies for timber policies
"He overhauled federal forest policy to cut more trees -- and became a lightning rod for environmentalists who say he is intent on logging every tree in his reach. After nearly seven years in office, Agriculture Undersecretary Mark Rey still has a long to-do list. Near the top: Persuade a federal judge to keep him out of jail ... A Montana judge, accusing Rey of deliberately skirting the law so the Forest Service can keep fighting wildfires with a flame retardant that kills fish, has threatened to put him behind bars."

Rey's main accomplishment is the 2003 Healthy Forests Restoration Act. If he does go to jail, let's call it the 2008 Celebrating Freedom Act.
