U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman Introduces Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015
"For far too long, our nation’s forests have been fighting a battle for survival. The conflict is not with logging but with effects of reactive versus proactive management which has resulted in costly confrontations with wildfire, disease, and insects. To improve forest management on federal lands, today I introduced the Resilient Federal Forests Act. This bill would utilize tools already available to the U.S. Forest Service and provide protection to America’s forests by reducing the risks of wildfires through proper management techniques."
