“The new forest planning rule is good news for our National Forest watersheds, local economies and outdoor recreational opportunities.  I’m pleased that the rule provides for more public engagement and lower costs for developing strong, collaborative and science-based land management plans.  After many years and many attempts to reform the National Forest planning process, I believe this is a balanced and realistic approach for moving forward.”
