Groskopf says he does not have a conflict of interest, but that he advocates for flexibility of use. Preston explains her question about conflict of interest. She refers to Billings Gazette doing a story on conflict of interest. He says we asked the editor to retract some of the lies he put in the paper. Says the editor did not retract, but the reporter ""left after he did that story"". Preston explains why she is asking the question, saying other people have put the question of Groskopf's possible conflict of interest to her. Groskopf says this isn't about my conflict of interest, but says it is about the Forest Service's decision to allow OHV use in the Franc's Peak area...Preston asks Groskopf if he was going to read all the public comments, edit them, and submit his summation of all the comments. He said no. Says the good part of the process is that there have been 24 public meetings...good public input. Says they are dissapointed in a dramatic loss of areas open to snowmobiles. Preston questions whether the OHV submitted comments after the end of the comment period...Grosskopf says no. Grosskopf says there were about 40,000 comments received. He says the GYC's of the world want the Franc's Peak area to be wilderness. (The Shoshone Forest Supervisor later took OHV use out of the plan) Grosskopf says litigation is a reality.
