NASF joins coalition letters to Senate in support of FY2014 appropriations for forestry programs

This week NASF joined numerous organizations in the forestry community in letters to the Senate. The letters mirrored those sent to the House last week in support of FY2014 appropriations for priority programs at the USDA Forest Service including: Forest Inventory and Analysis Program, Forest Health Program, Urban and Community Forestry Program, Forest Stewardship Program, and the State Fire Assistance Program. The letters and testimony were submitted to members of the Senate Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies as they begin their work writing a FY2014 Interior Appropriations bill that funds programs at the Department of Interior, EPA and the Forest Service.
