Westerman Forestry Bill Due For A Final Vote In U.S. House
Republican Congressman Bruce Westerman's first piece of major legislation is to go up for a final vote Thursday in the U.S. House of Representatives.
KUAR's Chris Hickey has a look at what the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 would do and why it came about.
Westerman has a background in forestry, having received a Master's Degree in the subject from Yale University. So it goes that Westerman turned his Congressional attention to a bill affecting management of forests on federal land.
