A member of the Committee of Scientists sees in its report a new mandate for the Forest Service--a mission that conflicts with existing statutory objectives. If such a change is warranted, he argues, it should reflect the judgment of the American people rather than the values of the appointed scientists. In any case, he believes, without basic reform of the budget process, the planning process recommended by the committee will do little to improve the outcome. And the chance that Congress will fully fund implementation of the committee's proposals is remote.
