The American Forest and Paper Association finds much to support in $ 1253, such as clarification of the USDA Forest Service's mission statement, emphasis on dependable commodity outputs, and simplification of the current planning process. Concerns about the proposed legislation include its failure to enhance access to the planning process for those who live close to national forests and for state and local governments. Further problems include failure to mandate improved inventory techniques developed by private industry and overreliance on an impossible standard for wildlife conservation.
