Post Udall wants more streamlined logging
WELCOME FLEXIBILITY ON TREES SUGGESTED BY ENVIRONMENTALIST
(Click for story)
U.S. Rep. Mark Udall of Colorado said this week some federal rules on timber harvest need to be streamlined to help combat the bark beetle infestation that is browning and killing huge stands of pine trees in national forests in his state and across the West. Udall suggested allowing governors to declare an emergency to deal with the beetles and a streamlining of federally required environmental reviews of logging and other projects to deal with the insect and its damage.
He plans to introduce legislation to expand the federal Healthy Forest Act, an initiative of the Bush administration, to give states and communities more leeway to go after the beetles.
