U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced the passage of his bipartisan bill to facilitate efficient and effective forest management by empowering collaboratives and public-private partnerships.
“Collaboration is key in better managing Montana’s forests—I’m glad to see this bipartisan bill to bring everyone to the table to help design, develop and implement innovative projects to create healthier environments, empower rural economies, and prevent devastating wildfires pass the U.S. Senate,” Daines said.
The “Root and Stem Act” received broad bipartisan support from Montana forestry and conservation groups – see statements of support HERE.
Senator Daines introduced the “Root and Stem Act” with Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in October 2021.
