Doubly Healthy Forest Opposition

Rep. Doc Hastings (R., WA) has introduced the Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act, which the White House strongly opposes. In their official statement, the Obama administration noted that the measure: 
includes numerous harmful provisions that impair Federal management of federally-owned lands and undermine many important existing public land and environmental laws, rules, and processes.  The bill would significantly harm sound long-term management of these Federal lands for continued productivity and economic benefit as well as for the long-term health of the wildlife and ecological values sustained by these holdings.
