Gianforte (MT), Westerman (AR) and the MORS crew recently talked about the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2017. This is a bill that just passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week and now goes to the U.S. Senate. If it becomes law, it would cut out the ability for special interest groups to be able to sue to stop logging projects designed to remove timber that presents a fire hazard in our forests, i.e. beetle kill, fire kill and overgrowth. This would draftily reduce forest fires in Montana and other states. It would be great to get behind this bill so it can eventually become a law.
Hear Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte and Arkansa Congressman Bruce Westerman discuss the Resilient Forest Act on the most recent episode of the Montana Outdoor Radio Show.
