Coalition Letter: Partner Caucus on Fire Suppression Funding Solutions Support Letter (February 10, 2014)

Dear Members of Congress:

For years the USDA Forest Service (USFS) and the Department of the Interior (DOI) have “robbed from Peter to pay Paul,” by transferring money out of vital agency programs and services in order to fund wildfire suppression costs. This practice is negatively affecting land management programs including those that decrease long-term wildfire risk and costs.

NASF Letter: US Fish and Wildlife Public Comments on Northern Longeared Bat (January 2, 2014)

Dear sir/madam:

The National Association of State Foresters is comprised of the heads of the state forestry agencies in all fifty states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories. State foresters directly manage some 63.1 million acres of publicly‐owned land and provide technical and financial assistance to more than 10 million family forest landowners who are the stewards of 264 million acres of forest land. State forestry agencies also provide wildland fire protection and forest health management services to 1.44 billion acres of both public and private land.

Dear Chief Tidwell,

We are writing to first thank you for your continued leadership in promoting wood as a green building material. We ask that you renew your commitment to this effort by investing $1 million in your FY2015 budget for a partnership between WoodWorks and the US Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory to bring products to market especially in the nonresidential building sector.

Coalition letter: Simpson/Moran, Reed/Murkowski - Fire Supression Funding Thank You (October 31, 2013)

Our groups are members of the Fire Suppression Funding Solutions Partner Caucus and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the tremendous leadership you demonstrated in ensuring that the fiscal year (FY) 2014 continuing resolution included a reimbursement of non-fire funds transferred to pay for fire suppression at the USDA Forest Service and Department of the Interior in FY 2013. Repayment of these funds will help minimize further disruption caused by the transfers.
