NASF recommends priorities for 2012 Farm Bill in challenging fiscal environment

NASF sent letters to House and Senate leaders to offer recommendations for the next Farm Bill that are priorities for State Foresters—many of which are shared by the Forests in the Farm Bill Coalition—and are essential in implementing each state’s forest action plan. State Foresters recognize that writing the next Farm Bill will be as difficult as any in the past; as states face the most challenging fiscal environment since the Great Depression, State Foresters appreciate the difficult choices that come with spending decisions.
