Our national forests are in desperate need of revitalization. Far too often, misguided special interest groups prevent innovative management from being implemented, resulting in poor forest health, and thereby increasing the threat of devastating wildfires. As Members representing rural America, we have a great appreciation for and an interest in protecting our region’s and nation’s rich natural heritage. It is important that we preserve our nation’s beautiful parks, forests, recreational areas, and wildlife for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. We must combat catastrophic wildfires by implementing active forest management principles such as utilizing categorical exclusions, hazardous fuels reduction, prescribed burns, mechanical thinning, and developing policies that cut back on burdensome regulations and red tape.
