Senate sends Interior appropriations bill to President Obama

The Senate on Thursday sent President Obama the $32.2 billion fiscal 2010 Interior-Environment Appropriations bill that includes a 16% increase for the Forest Service’s State and Private Forestry programs, along with a 23% increase for S&PF programs funded through the Wildland Fire Management appropriation. The bill also establishes the FLAME fund for emergency wildland fire suppression. Stay tuned for more information and a response from NASF early next week.
