Update on protest against National Forest Service rules requiring permit for filmmaking, photography
ASNE was one of 17 organizations that immediately 
sent a letter to Forest Service Chief Thomas Tidwell that opposed the proposal to make permanent certain interim directives, which govern the need for permits by those engaged in commercial filmmaking or still photography on National Forest System lands.  

We were pleased when Tidwell issued a memorandum for all Forest Service personnel that clearly stated: "Journalism or media coverage is not to be considered a commercial activity for purposes of the regulations or our permit policies on any NFS lands." But we also knew that the effect of his words would be limited, and comments would need to be filed.
