This is the September 29, 2021 hearing on 'Sustainable Forestry's Role in Climate Solutions,' held before the Subcommittee on Underserved, Agricultural, and Rural Business Development of the Committee on Small Business. From the opening statement of Jared Golden: "Keeping our forests healthy helps to promote sustainability, address climate change, and ensure that small businesses and workers in rural areas share in the economic benefits. As Congress looks to address and mitigate the negative sides of climate change and bolster American small businesses with the bipartisan infrastructure bill and other legislation, we should support industries that help on both fronts. I look forward to hearing from our witnesses about how policies can be put together here in Congress that will help them to be successful businesses, as business-owners, that will help them to continue to make a living the way that they choose and enjoy while also taking part in good sustainable forestry that makes for a healthy forest." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dana Doran, Adam Daigneault, Mark Thibodeau, and Scott Dane.
