Forest Service Funding under RPA
Abstract:As appraised on various bases of comparison, funding for the USDA Forest Service has increased since passage of the Resources Planning Act. The increases have been proportionally greater than those for the federal government as a whole. The Bureau of Land Management in the U.S. Department of the Interior made equal gains in its overall appropriations but not in funding for land management. The Forest Service increases were, however; spread unevenly among the bureau's major activities, being larger for land management than for research and state and private forestry. And there is no evidence that RPA improved the balance of funding among the individual resources in the National Forest System.
