A Start on the Long Road to Reform
The National Association of State Foresters supports the provisions in $ 1253 that would simplify the planning and appeals process of the USDA Forest Service and endorses those parts of the bill that mandate forest plan outputs and adherence to them. $ 1253 could still be improved, however, by defining a statutory role for state agencies. The bill should also establish the forest Service as the leader in a nationwide, all-ownership inventorying and monitoring effort based on the Montreal Process criteria and indicators, which are nowhere mentioned.
