Turning Back the Clock
Abstract:$ 1253 would reverse positive science-based changes in forest policy by eliminating environmental checks and balances inscribed in current legislation and making timber production the dominant use of federal forests. Mandatory commodity outputs prescribed in the legislation threaten ecological integrity and the long-term vitality of species by superseding environmental guidelines. The bill creates an unwieldy petition process that would hinder citizens' efforts to generate appeals to forest plans based on new information.
