House approves legislation that promotes unsustainable logging
The following statement is from Rebecca Judd, Legislative Counsel for Earthjustice:
“It’s clear the current House of Representatives will use any means possible to pass legislation that guts our water, wildlife, and public land protections. This bill is a misguided effort to address county funding but instead it promotes the destructive and irreparable harm that widespread logging inflicts on our national forests and neighboring communities.
“This is the worst forest bill we’ve seen in more than a decade and abandons our nation’s commitment to protect our rich natural heritage today and for future generations.”
