Environmentalists Pounce On House Forest Bill

Dec 7, 2017

The U.S. House passed HR 2936 in early November, the Resilient Federal Forests Act. 

It is designed to get more people working in the woods and more trees out, all in the name of healthier forests and communities. 

Environmental groups are not buying.  The Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center calls it "The Clearcut Logging Bill." 

The Senate has yet to take up the measure, co-sponsored by Oregon 2nd District Representative Greg Walden. 

George Sexton, Conservation Director at KS Wild, is our guest. 

He gives the opposite side from an interview a day earlier.
