This is the October 4, 1994 hearing on "Fire Policy and Related Forest Health Issues," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources and the Committee on Agriculture. From the opening statement of George Miller: "This oversight hearing [...] is very important to those of us concerned with the stewardship of the public lands and with the impact of fire and fire policies as they relate to the public lands. We have witnessed again this year, as we have in many past years, the impact of fire. And, unfortunately, this year we had the tragic impact of fire with the loss of the lives of the firefighters and the loss of people's property. This calls into focus how we can best put together a policy that will respond to the evolving forest policies and to the changing living patterns and habits of the citizens of this country who are moving into forested areas in increasing numbers." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bob Armstrong, Mel Berg, Daniel B. Botkin, Joan Comanor, Michael Dombeck, James Douglas, James Lyons, and Jack Ward Thomas.
