Official Title

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that allocating the appropriate resources to wildland fire management is needed to protect the environment, the economy, and the people of the United States, and for other purposes.

Summary

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that allocating the appropriate resources to wildland fire management is needed to protect the environment, the economy, and the people of the United States. Urges the Forest Service to manage federal forest lands proactively in a manner that protects life and property, prevents catastrophic wildfire, promotes forest and watershed health, and creates jobs and economic development in the forest products industry.
    I believe we are already doing this. The existing forestry groups just need better funding. There is no need to tell the experts how to develop the forest to protect against wildfires. Forestry IS a Science! Anywhere you have a forest , you will have danger of fire. We can not destroy all forests or layers of the forests. Maybe. We have a population problem.
