Westerman Urges Senate Action on Forestry Bill

December 9, 2015

Tonight, I joined my House colleagues to urge immediate action on the Resilient Federal Forests Act. This year, more than 9 million acres have burned due to catastrophic wildfires. The House overwhelmingly passed H.R. 2647 in July. How many more acres will burn, how many homes will be lost, and how many lives will be put at undue risk before the Senate acts?
