House Passes Forestry Bill Again

The U.S. House has passed a forestry bill developed by three Oregon congressmen for a second time, this time as part of a jobs bill in an effort to prod the Senate to take action on it.  The Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act includes O&C Trust, Conservation, and Jobs Act put together by Republican Greg Walden and Democrats Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader as an effort to create jobs in the woods, improve forest health, reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire, and generate revenue for local communities.  The Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act originally passed the House nearly a year ago, but the Senate has not acted on it.
