This is the September 12, 1996 hearing on the "Resource Management and Fire Control Policies," held before the U.S. House National Parks, Forests and Lands of the Committee on Resources. From the opening statement of James V. Hansen: "The Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Lands will now convene its oversight on the Forest Service's resource management and fire control policies. This issue certainly deserves more time than we can provide today. However, the severity of the current fire season and a number of related land management issues compel us to take an initial look at how we got to the current condition and what is needed to reduce fire danger in the future. I am particularly interested in learning how the new Federal Wildland Fire Policy will enable the Forest Service to reduce the magnitude and severity of wildland fires in the future, and how the agency will integrate that policy into its land management process." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Blaine Cornell, Mary Jo Lavin, James R. Lyons, Leon F. Neuenschwander, Jack Ward Thomas, and Richard A. Wilson.
