S. Hrg. 114-267: Wildfire: Stakeholder Perspectives on Budgetary Impacts and Threats to Natural Resources on Federal, State, and Private Lands [open pdf - 3MB]
This testimony is from the November 5, 2015 hearing, "Wildfire: Stakeholder Perspectives on Budgetary Impacts and Threats to Natural Resources on Federal, State, and Private Lands," held before the United States Senate, Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. From the statement of Pat Roberts: "Today, the committee turns its attention to a topic that is quite timely coming off the end of a disastrous wildfire season. It is my hope that this hearing adds to the public record about the need to address significant policy issues regarding catastrophic wildfire and forest management on federal, state, and private lands. Let me emphasize that our committee has the oversight responsibility for the U.S. Forest Service, whose primary mission is to sustain the overall health, diversity, and productivity of our country's National Forests. Often thought of as a Western issue on public lands, this hearing serves as a reminder that the Agriculture Committee has a critical role in the larger wildfire debate." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include the following: Pat Roberts, Dan Dessecker, William R. Dougan, Ken Stewart, and Chris Treese.
