| Dear Scott,
The dry, hot season is just around the corner once again. We have watched our forests burning down for the past several years, due to the failed federal policies that are taking a severe toll on our public lands.
Our state forest services have proven that they are better able to manage our forests for multiple-use and sustained yield, as well as to preserve them for generations to come. It is time we insist that the federal government dispose of the public lands that were promised to the states upon admission into the union, placing them in the capable hands of the local people.
How long will we stand by and watch our forests burn?
