This testimony compilation is from the May 25, 2017 hearing on "Budget Hearing - U.S. Forest Service," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Ken Calvert: "The President's fiscal year 2018 budget request is a significant departure from the last several fiscal years with its proposed overall reduction of $900 million - 16 percent - below the fiscal year 2017 enacted level for Forest Service programs. And again we have a budget request in which more than 50 percent of the Service's budget is dedicated to fighting fires. We will have many questions about these cuts and their effects on operations, staffing, and programs. In particular, this Subcommittee continues to be concerned about the cost of fighting wildfires and the effect it has on other Forest Service budgets, programs, and management." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sonny Perdue and Tom Tidwell.
