UP Divided On Forestry Bills Passed by Michigan House by Red Tape Blog
Red Tape Blog writes: Regulators would have fewer reasons to prohibit logging in state forests and private landowners would be encouraged to allow timber cutting on their property under bills approved Tuesday by the Michigan House.
The Republican-sponsored legislation, aimed at boosting the state's logging industry, next heads to the Senate. It is opposed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, environmental groups and local governments.
