Those of you that wonder how the process of “creating” a new allotment transpires, here’s a current example. Remember, if approved, during the next appropriate window anyone can apply for this opening. Mr. Miller’s application is basically on ice until then. I doubt the deep pockets would have any interest in this location, about a 45 minute drive out of Walla Walla. In the pre-1996 scenario, in an MX situation Mr. Miller would receive pioneering points that with all other factors being equal, would ensure he got the CP. Not any more.
