How not to do a SEQR review

NNYFollies, a Watertown-area blog, posts a take on the recent (re-)passage by the Lewis County legislature of a proposition opening certain roads and forested areas to ATV use. The previous legislation has already been challenged in the courts, and I'm sort of in awe of the process described in the blog post. Repassage of the exact resolution, with little done in the way of formal impact review, seems geared to make a political point and not perform the review required under the law.

IMO, the process seems so far from what any learned person would describe as a serious inquiry that it really seems it was done to thumb noses as someone. Not exactly efficient government.
